The impact of the drought on migration from Ethiopia to Djibouti
Migration triggers and household decision-making
The Horn of Africa is facing the most severe drought in more than 40 years, affecting an estimated 36 million people. Under the 2022 and 2023 Migrant Response Plan for the Horn of Africa and Yemen, MMC and IOM have partnered to generate an evidence base on the different mobility patterns linked to the drought crisis. This snapshot examines the impact of the drought on international migration along the Eastern Route towards the Arabian Peninsula, shedding light on the profiles, drivers and mobility patterns of affected Ethiopians interviewed in key points of transit in Djibouti.
An accompanying snapshot on migration from Ethiopia to Somalia is available here.
