UNHCR Global Trends 2019 - media page
UNHCR’s latest Global Trends report shows that 79.5 million people were forcibly displaced at the end of 2019. That's fully 1 per cent of humanity, or 1 in every 97 people on earth.
Some 11 million people were newly displaced in the course of last year – fleeing wars, violence or persecution. Overwhelmingly it is low- and middle-income countries that are most affected.
Released in parallel, UNHCR's Global Report reflects the agency's work on behalf of those within its mandate, including most people forced to flee and the world's stateless populations.
