  • In Amhara, 517,000 IDPs and returnees still require ES/NFI assistance, with almost half living in inadequate conditions. Overcrowding is a major problem in collective centers in Deber Berhan, Sekota, and Zarima, increasing health and protection risks to IDPs living there.

  • Increased influx of IDPs in Tigray, Amhara, Oromia, and Somali regions have added to the already existing unmet needs.

  • Ongoing hostilities and security concerns over the past few weeks affected partners’ movement and field activities in several locations across the country.

  • Lack of viable land for relocation of IDPs, and delay in installation of camp facilities in the newly proposed relocation sites in Amhara.
