Recent conflict in North Wello has displaced an estimated 5000 individuals who are currently found in 13 collective centers, mostly Primary and secondary schools in Dessie (4,500 individuals) and Dessie (500 individuals). Additionally, an estimated 100,000 individuals are reportedly living in host community according to local authorities.
Local authorities from the city of Dessie and from DRMO requested the cluster to assist them in setting up a formal camp as they are no longer confident that the IDPs will be able to return immediately. CCCM Cluster suggested other sheltering options for them to explore first and to only consider the establishment of a formal camps as a last resort.
