Evidence shows that internally displaced people (IDPs) in urban settings such as Maiduguri face a range of challenges in accessing services and employment, and that these are specifically related to their displacement. They impede their efforts to achieve durable solutions and increase the risk of their becoming trapped in protracted, repeated or cyclical displacement. There is, however, only limited information about how the challenges that IDPs in urban areas face differ from those experienced by their counterparts in rural areas and the broader urban poor.
