In 2007 Lebanon hosted more than 450,000 Palestinian refugees. In May of that year, an intense conflict in Tripoli, north Lebanon, spread to Naher el Bared camp causing 30,000 Palestinian refugees to flee their homes and take refuge in nearby camps. Many families were displaced and temporarily relocated to government school buildings and UNRWA Shelters.

In 2007, tens of thousands of Zimbabweans fled into neighbouring countries due to food shortages, near-total collapse of the domestic economy, and continued political repression in Zimbabwe. It is estimated that between 800,000 and 1 million people had fled to South Africa in search of employment and to send food back to their families in Zimbabwe. The majority of the refugees in early 2007 were men, who went without food themselves in order to support their families back home.

Adjumani is a poor district in the north west of Uganda; due to the activities of the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army), the district saw an increase in Sudanese refugees and IDPs from the Acholi region. Combined, the population increase put pressure on marginal and ecologically fragile lands. Biomass was indiscriminately harvested for use as firewood, lighting, warming shelters, charcoal burning, house construction, leaving areas bare of trees and shade. This contributed to erosion and the loss of soil nutrients.

The influx of returnees to Juba in 2007 was causing severe pressure on housing services and an already overstretched infrastructure. 21 years of civil war destroyed much of the region’s infrastructure and so standards of sanitation were very poor. Inadequate basic services and limited availability of pit latrines forced people to use open spaces. Also traditional beliefs among some tribes did not encourage the use of latrines. These factors, combined with a high population density and inadequate sanitation systems, mean that the spread of disease is a severe problem.
