Offices in other countries may add as need may occur. Thus, in 2017, the countries in the AoR of the two offices are (in clock wise geographical order): Ethiopia, Djibouti, Somalia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, , Malawi, Uganda, Sudan, South Sudan and Kenya. Priority countries in terms of security are Somali, the refugee camp in Dadaab/Kenya and SSD. Attention also needs to be given to Kenya and Ethiopia. This may change depending on the dynamics of crisis and conflict.
