Inter-ethnic violence since September 2017, namely along the Oromia-Somali regional border, has led to 500 000 people still being displaced.

In addition, Somali region has been one of the hardest hit areas of the 2016-2017 drought and the 2018 floods. Food insecurity and climate related displaced affects 373 600 individuals.

It is reported that recent violence early August 2018 has led thousands more to flee their homes and seek refuge, notably in East Hararghe.
