Scars of War and Deprivation

An Urgent Call to Reverse Tigray's Humanitarian Crisis

The conflict in Tigray since November 2020 has resulted in significant loss of life and displacement. Today, Ethiopia hosts 4.38 million IDPs – one of the highest IDP populations in the world. Ongoing issues in the region include human rights violations, food and medicine shortages, sexual violence, and inadequate access to psychosocial support. . The report provides an overview of the key issues facing Ethiopia and the Tigray region and draws specific lessons on systemic shortcomings in the global response to internal displacement. Additionally, it develops recommendations for the United States, the aid community, donors, and development actors, as well as the Ethiopian government and Tigrayan authorities.
