    Market Systems Analysis in Djibouti - summary report

    30 May 2018

    Djibouti currently hosts over 27.000 refugees and asylum seekers. The country’s new refugee law, promulgated on 5 January 2017, equips refugees with rights that place them on equal footing with citizens. Although this is a radical departure from the situation before 2017, the enforcement of the new refugee law will likely require further work. Without knowledge and information, refugees will miss out on opportunities created by the new legal framework. This market systems analysis investigates why refugees are currently not fully exploiting these opportunities and provides recommendations to enhance the positive effects of this new law.

    The East, Adamaoua, and Northern regions of Cameroon have been most severely impacted by the successive crises in the Central African Republic (CAR) with large influxes of refugees, notable during 2004-2008 and 2014-2015. Despite the subsequently tremendous pressure on local resources, refugees and members of the host community maintain a peaceful coexistence. This paper flags the problems of refugees and asylum-seekers in the mais and groundnut sector and provides with recommendations to increase incomes and create additional employment in the target regions.
