- 42,000 People displaced [?]
Djibouti hosts some 29,000 long-term Somali, Ethiopian, Yemeni and Eritrean refugees (of which 21,000 live in settlements) as well as Djiboutian returnees from Yemen. Additionally, Djibouti is a major transit point for both migrants and refugees from the Horn of Africa (mainly Ethiopians and Somalis) travelling through Yemen and towards Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries. Since the escalation of conflict in Yemen from March 2015, the inflow of Yemeni migrants has increased as well, with some 5,000 Yemeni refugees staying in Djibouti and the other transiting towards other countries. ?
The presence of transiting migrants has created additional pressure on the state’s limited capacity to respond to humanitarian needs and provide basic services. While refugees and asylum-seekers receive some form of assistance in the refugee camps of Markazi in the north, Ali-Addeh and Holl-Holl in the south, transiting migrants who become stranded in the country when they deplete their resources face higher humanitarian needs. Due to the volatile situations in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia,and Yemen, refugee arrivals are expected to continue. ?
