Improve enabling environment for Djibouti’s Early Childhood Development system of services Djibouti is a lower-middle-income economy with a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) equivalent to US$ 1. 85 billion in 2017 and a population estimated at approximately one million, mainly concentrated in and around Djibouti Ville where an estimated 75 percent of the population lives.

Despite a relatively high per capita income of US$1,862 in 2015, 30 percent of the population lives in poverty and 21 percent lives in extreme poverty according to the fourth (2018) round of household survey (EDAM4).

The same survey also found that 36 percent of Djibouti’s population is under 14 years old and 51 percent under 24 years old.

Djibouti hosts approximately 35,000 refugees, mostly from Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, and Yemen, who reside in three major settlements as well as in urban areas.

It is anticipated that asylum cases could increase given current crisis situations unfolding in neighboring Ethiopia.
