Tigray: Atlas of the humanitarian situation

Sofie Annys; Tim Vanden Bempt; Emnet Negash; Lars De Sloover; Jan Nyssen

At the beginning of November 2020, an armed conflict emerged in Tigray, Ethiopia’s northernmost region. The objective of this ‘Atlas of the Humanitarian
Situation’ is to document and map the situation in which approximately 6 million Tigrayans currently find themselves. For this, we contacted key informants
in different districts of Tigray to collect qualitative and quantitative evidence of the actual situation on the ground. We also confronted these data and
testimonies with information disclosed by the Government of Ethiopia and by humanitarian organizations. The 19 maps in this atlas provide detailed
information at the scale of districts (woredas) or sub-districts (tabiyas). Besides background information related to administrative divisions, social and natural
resources - locations of internally displaced people, massacres and civilian casualties receive due attention. Humanitarian access and needs are particularly
addressed; official data on humanitarian aid distribution are mapped, and contrasted to ground evidence related to such distributions. The final outlook, using
a map of the onset of the growing season, forewarns that a continuation of the Tigray war may lead to another failed harvest in the next season.
