The member states of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) are some of the most vulnerable to disasters globally. it is not unusual that the Region experiences sequences of drought periods contrasted by wet periods that cause widespread flooding, landslides and storm damage, resulting in destruction of property and loss of services and livelihoods. In 2019, more than 1.5 million people were newly displaced, both within their countries, and across international borders. Many of those forced to move had previously been affected by widespread rain shortages in a region classified as 60 -70 per cent arid and semi-arid; in Somalia alone, 1.15 million people were displaced in the context of drought and land degradation during 2017 and 2018.
