Latest figures analysis

IDMC’s estimate is based on data obtained in 2015 from OCHA and updated with the latest figures from ICRC on the reconstrcution of homes for families returning to their villages. Since 1990, inhabitants of large areas in Casamance, along the border with Guinea-Bissau, have fled their homes as a result of clashes between the Senegalese army and members of the separatist Movement of Democratic Forces in the Casamance (MFDC).
