Ethiopia - Kebribeyah Settlement Profile, July 2020
As the longest surviving refugee settlement in the Somali Regional State, Kebribeyah settlement has a vast range of opportunities that can be capitalised upon. The “de-facto” social integration with the host community due to cultural similarities and language, strategic location within the system of cities and a long history of trade linkages between the Horn of Africa and the Middle East as well as signs of political will at the federal and local levels all provide the framework of a sound enabling environment for CRRF implementation. Though the UNHCR’s budgets for Ethiopia have steadily risen with the number of refugees, the proportion that is funded has declined over time: from 62% in 2014 to around 50% in 2017 and 2018. There is concern that this challenging environment characterised by the lack of clarity may lead to a further reduction in donors’ overall commitments. What is needed next is a practical and consolidated strategy linked to financial resources to be put in place.
