This case study concentrates on the 2011 drought in Somalia and the environmental migrations induced both internally, within the Somali borders, and internationally, in the neighboring countries. Since July 2011, it has been estimated that more than 1.3 million people were internally displaced and 290,000 forced to flee across the border (UNHCR 2011c).
