Latest from UNHCR
Intense fighting has broken out in Sudan, with reports of civilians killed and injured in multiple parts of the country.
Prices of food, fuel and other basic goods are reportedly skyrocketing, making critical goods unaffordable for many people. Despite attempts at ceasefires, people are being displaced amid the clashes and are fleeing to neighbouring countries like Chad and South Sudan, in urgent need of basic relief items and shelter.
UNHCR teams are on the ground to meet new arrivals and provide life-saving assistance. But as the fighting displaces more people, support is urgently needed to scale up the response.

UNHCR's Global Trends report presents key statistical trends and the latest numbers of refugees, asylum-seekers, internally displaced and stateless persons.
If ongoing conflicts remain unresolved and the risks of new ones erupting are not reined in, one aspect that will define the twenty-first century will be the continuously growing numbers of people forced to flee and the increasingly dire options available to them.
