Map of the Month 06/2021

At the end of 2020 82.4 Mio. people were forcibly displaced, which is more than 1% of humanity, double the figure a decade ago and almost 3 Mio. more than in 2019 - besides the border closure in more than 160 countries. With 58,3%, the amount of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) climbed a new record high. The dynamics of protracted conflicts, the effects of climate change as well as COVID-19 are increasingly interconnected and mutually reinforcing in driving displacement.
