Migration and development dynamics in Baidoa, Somalia
Out-migration is decreasing in Baidoa, a fast-growing city host to many internally displaced people. Amid better security, livelihood expansion and humanitarian assistance, many feel hope for the future.
As of November 2022, Somali authorities are working to avert famine from a record drought that has affected nearly eight million Somalis, or half the population. Thousands of families are arriving in Baidoa, fleeing starvation in the countryside to displaced camps in the city. Aid groups and authorities are pleading for international help to prevent further loss of life.
