Assistance to Vulnerable Groups Including Refugees - Djibouti 200293

This operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 1 (see below).

Though the Gross National Income per capita is US$ 1,280, the Djiboutian population of 818,159, with a 2.8 percent annual growth rate continues to experience high incidences of poverty. Djibouti is also disaster prone and has been experiencing less rain for the last five years. The most recent shock being the 2011 Horn of Africa drought that has led to famine  threatening over 12 million lives in parts of Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Djibouti,  and Uganda. In addition an increased influx of refugees into Djibouti due to the catastrophic conditions and increased incidence of insecurity in Somalia. These shocks continue to place the country in a situation requiring urgent and increased relief and early recovery support.
