Regional heads of state on Saturday (March 25) met in Nairobi, Kenya to seek a regional approach in delivering durable solutions to the Somali refugee crisis in the region.

The heads of state from Kenya, Uganda, Somalia, South Sudan and Ethiopia meeting under a regional grouping, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, called for greater global responsibility sharing with the region, where communities have been hosting and sharing limited resources with Somali refugees for years.

The United Nations said on Saturday that more than two million Somalis have been displaced, including an estimated 1 million internally displaced persons within Somalia and 900,000 Somali refugees in the region, including large numbers in Kenya, Ethiopia, Yemen, Uganda and Djibouti.
