Kalobeyei integrated socio-economic development programme
The global refugee situation has been worsening over the last decade, with conflict re-emerging and appearing in new forms in all major world regions. Over this period, Sub-Saharan Africa has both generated and hosted the world’s largest refugee population. By the end of 2015, the region was home to 4.4 million refugees (about a quarter of the total refugee population under UNHCR mandate), of which more than half (2.7 million) were hosted in the East and Horn of Africa region. By the end of 2015, Kenya was ranked seventh in the world in numbers of refugees it hosted (553,900), and was the African country with the second highest refugee population (after Ethiopia which hosted 736,100 refugees)
