East Africa comprises 22 states or territories, 9 of which were involved in active armed conflicts in 2021 (see figure 7.1). This section focuses on five of these armed conflicts: in Ethiopia, Mozambique, Somalia, South Sudan and Sudan (which all saw sharp escalations or continuing large-scale armed violence in 2021). There were more than 9.6 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) and more than 4.7 million refugees across East Africa, primarily due to conflict and violence in these five countries. Grave violations against civilians, including conflict-related sexual violence, continued to be committed in the region, while at least 33.8 million people were severely food insecure.1
