Kenya: What the Future Holds for The World's Largest Refugee Camp

According to Ambassador Mohamed Abdi Affey, the UN Refugee Agency special envoy, the UN is trying to mitigate the pressures the government faces in keeping Dadaab open - for instance, security concerns. He says if there is going to be a closure of the camp that hosts over 250 000 Somali refugees, it won't happen overnight.
