OXFAM in Ethiopia:

Ethiopia has one of the largest refugee populations in Africa, currently hosting 870,507 refugees (June 2022, UNHCR). Of these, 42.7% (371,562) are South Sudanese refugees, hosted in the Gambella Region of western Ethiopia. Refugees started crossing the border from South Sudan into Ethiopia in December 2013, and mainly originate from Upper Nile (69.4%) and Jonglei (28.2%) States in South Sudan. Despite initial progress and implementation of the peace accord signed between the South Sudan government and the rebel faction in July 2015, there has been a re-emergence of violent fighting causing death, mass displacement, ethnic conflicts, and food shortages. Between September 2016 and June 2022 165,051 new refugees entered the Gambella region from South Sudan (June 22, UNHCR). The refugee population has been relocated and is settled in seven camps within Gambella (Tierkidi, Kule, Jewi, Nguenyyiel, Pugnido, Pugnido II, and Okugo).

The updated Humanitarian Response (HRP) Plan for Ethiopia identified critical gaps in food and WASH (among others) in Gambella, noting that incoming cross-border movements remain concerning, due to the lack of government capacity coupled with limited humanitarian coverage. The HRP states that “Congested spontaneous and collective settlements of IDPs, returnees and refugees (such as those in Gambella) have been particularly at risk due to the communities’ heightened density, vulnerability, needs and lack of adequate support. Furthermore, heavy 2020 spring spots of rain caused flooding, affecting more than 250,000 people, of whom 20,892 people were in Gambella, where houses were destroyed, livelihoods were lost and critical WASH infrastructures were damaged. This GAC project, therefore, aims to provide life-saving and durable solutions for refugee communities, and displaced persons and to address the tensions being caused locally due to the strain of resources through the provision of potable and safe drinking water supply, provision of dignified sanitation facilities with hygiene promotion services and improving access to protection services for SGBV
