Report On Forced Displacement: UNDP
According to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) report “Turning the tide on internal displacement: A development approach to solutions”, for the first time ever, more than 100 million people were forcibly displaced in 2022, most of them within their own countries.
Findings of the Report:
- At the end of 2021, there were over 59 million people forcibly displaced within their own countries due to conflict, violence, disasters and climate change.
- Before the war in Ukraine, 6.5 million people are estimated to have been internally displaced.
- By 2050, climate change may force more than an estimated 216 million people to move within their own countries.
- Disaster-related internal displacement is even more widespread, with new displacements recorded in over 130 countries and territories in 2021.
- Around 30% of professional lives became unemployed and 24% were not able to earn money the same way as before.
- 48% of the internally displaced households earned less money than before displacement.
