Displacement of people may be due to various reasons development activity being one of them. This study is intended to assess challenges encountered by households displaced from Dambi Dollo University and Air Port Project site. The data was collected using questionnaire, interview, focus group discussion and document review. Descriptive method is used to analyze the data. The major findings are that compensation is in cash only and there is no resettlement as well as rehabilitation activity undertaken. Households faced challenges like homelessness, joblessness, social disintegration, difficulties of access to infrastructure and conflict among family members. Displacement worsened the life of vulnerable groups.  The loss of farmland resulted in youth unemployment which in turn caused migration to urban where they are addicted to kchat, cigarette and alcohol. Proper Implementation of resettlement program, rehabilitation schemes, provisions of infrastructures and facilitating employment opportunity are recommended.
