City of flight: new and secondary displacements in Mogadishu

Between 2017 and mid-2018, 32% of new displacements recorded in Somalia were to, or within, the capital city of Mogadishu. Urban displacement is contributing to the fact that Mogadishu now has the second highest urban population density in the world. The year of 2017 was Somalia’s second most violent year in nearly a decade. Drought, competition for natural resources and poor living conditions fuel fighting in rural
areas and push people towards Mogadishu.
