Somalia Protection Cluster: Constant risks, looming disaster: the urgent case for a moratorium on evictions

Evictions represent a constant risk for vulnerable communities in Somalia, including displaced populations living in collective settlements and other urban poor in densely populated areas. Through 2019, more than 268,800 people were forcibly evicted from their homes, including 156,000 in Mogadishu alone. While these figures suggest a decrease compared to 2018, evictions remain at highly problematic levels, where 48,200 people have already been evicted through 2020, including 33,400 in Mogadishu.
