The world’s largest displacement crises continue to be characterized by forced displacement in fragile contexts experiencing armed violence. Several renewed displacements took place in 2016 as a result of armed conflict, including non-state armed groups and/or government forces attacking civilians. Displacement crises have led to increased insecurity, tensions and vulnerabilities in the affected communities. Some of the worst effects appear to be larger exposure to existing risks, such as severe food insecurity and sexual abuse. Based on the experiences of the ongoing displacement crises discussed in this chapter, the long-term challenges of sustaining livelihoods and resettling and reintegrating large displaced populations will continue to be a struggle. Displacement crises are more likely to be recycled, larger and more difficult to resolve going forward.
