Implementation History

2001

No Implementation

No information available on implementation in North (Afar) beyond a call for rehabilitation and reconstruction in the peace agreement. As a matter of fact, UNHCR does not report any IDPs in Djibouti between 2001 and 2005.1

Internally displaced persons issue is very tricky in Djibouti as Djibouti’s nationality law allows people from neighboring countries.2
