This is hot off the press today and reflects the latest global refugee statistics (released earlier today by the UN). I’ve been producing the Map of the Refugee Highway for many years.
The news is not good. Here are some current realities.
- The number of forcibly displaced people in the world has increased by 50% in the last 10 years.
- 1:110 people alive today are forcibly displaced.
- 44,400 people are newly displaced every day.
I will pick up where I left off tomorrow as I update other key IAFR resources designed to raise awareness and help create space in the hearts and minds of people.
