    Overview
    Ethiopia has a long standing history of hosting refugees. The country maintains an open door policy for refugee inflows into the country and allows humanitarian access and protection to those seeking asylum on its territory. In 2004, a national Refugee Proclamation was enacted based on the international and regional refugee conventions to which Ethiopia is a party (1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, and its 1967 Protocol and the 1969 OAU Convention). Continued insecurity within neighbouring states has resulted in sustained refugee movements, either directly as a result of internal conflict and human rights abuses or as a result of conflict related to competition for scare natural resources and drought related food insecurity. Ethiopia provides protection to refugees from some 19 countries.

    Ethiopia has well-established refugee response and coordination processes in place, based on the Refugee Coordination Model (RCM), which are anchored in a solid framework of refugee law and procedure. An inter-agency Refugee Coordination Group comprised of the heads of agencies, and other senior staff supporting the national refugee response meets quarterly to discuss strategic and inter-sector operational issues. Active sector working groups include Protection, Health, Education, WASH, Shelter, Energy and the Environment, together with a Child Protection/SGBV sub-working group which meet on a monthly basis. The refugee response in Ethiopia brings together fifty operational partners, including the Government of Ethiopia’s Administration for Refugee and Returnee Affairs (ARRA), supported by UNHCR – the UN Refugee Agency, in coordination with UN agencies, international and national NGOs.
       Situations related to this Country
    • Ethiopia - Horn of Africa Somalia Situation

      Somalia is at the heart of one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world today. Twenty years of conflict and waves of drought have uprooted a quarter of the country’s 7.5 million people. As the region faces its most severe drought in 60 years, the Somali exodus is growing fast. The refugees urgently need medical aid and high-protein, high-energy food. They also need clean water, shelter and basic services in the camps.

    • Yemen Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan

      Humanitarian actors involved in the response to the outflow of civilians from Yemen due to the current conflict are committed to providing life-saving assistance and protection to those fleeing Yemen, pending durable solutions.

    • Ethiopia - South Sudan

      The situation in South Sudan and neighbouring countries has quickly escalated into a full-blown humanitarian emergency. The majority of the refugees are women and children, many of whom flee across the border alone. Often, they arrive weak and malnourished. When the rainy season comes, their needs are compounded by flooding, food shortages and disease. Inside South Sudan, nearly two million people are displaced internally, while outside the country there are now over two million South Sudanese refugees, mainly in Ethiopia, Sudan, and Uganda. Many fear imminent attack or struggle with food insecurity. Uganda currently hosts the most South Sudanese refugees, having taken in more than one million.
