Ethiopia’s internal security lapses coupled with floods in parts of the country have earned them the unenviable record of global leader internally displaced persons.

According to the Geneva-based group, Internal Displacement Monitoring Center, IDMC, Ethiopia currently had about 1.4 million internally displaced persons for the first half of this year (January – June 2018.)



“The humanitarian situation in Ethiopia deteriorated significantly in the first half of 2018,” IDMC said in its current report.

The country has 200,000 more internally displaced than Syria in second place.

Five African countries follow in third to seventh spot Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Somalia, Central African Republic and South Sudan.

Ethiopia’s figures included: 171,000 persons displaced by floods in four regions. New conflict in West Guji and Gedeo zones, along the border between the Oromia and Southern Nations, Peoples and Nationalities (SNNPR) regions, triggered more than a million new displacements.

Intercommunal violence along border areas of the Oromia and Somali regions also played a role. Going by the figures, the overall number of new displacements increased sharply compared to the 213,000 reported during the same time period last year.
