July SUMMARY

In July 2022, 12,301 individuals have been forcefully evicted across Somalia bringing the total to 92,269 forced evictions since Jan 2022. .

Newly displaced families are joining existing IDP settlements as a coping mechanism with unclear tenure arrangements, putting them at further risk of forced evictions. Significant secondary displacements and forced evictions are expected to persist in coming months due to influxes of new arrivals in search of humanitarian assistance and tenure insecurity. This is exacerbated by the weak normative and institutional frameworks, rapid urbanisation, and increasing value of land due to increased commercial and development investments (e.g development of road infrastructure in and around the Mogadishu). Moreover, the majority of those displaced are elderly, children and women, including pregnant and lactating mothers. The lack of proper shelter and privacy in overcrowded IDP settlements has exposed women and children to protection risks such as gender-based violence including rape and physical assaults.

In Mogadishu, 283 latrines constructed by agencies and the communities and five Qur’anic schools were destroyed due to the forced evictions that took place in June. At the same time, another 10 IDP settlements which hosts more than 1,582 households (of approximately 9,492 individuals) were issued eviction notices between 7-20 days. The sites include: Qoryoley, Borwaqo, Xirsi-Rug, Tonole, Allaweyn, Barxadweyne, Xushmo, Danyar, Bashaash, and Bahwaaley Dooraweere in Kaxda, Garasbalay and Daynile districts. Forced eviction victims include more than 1,901 newly drought displaced families (approximately 11,406 individuals) from Lower Shebelle and Dinsoor.
