In 2016 forced displacement continued to be a major challenge to human security, most notably in the Middle East and Africa, which together currently host over two-thirds of the world’s displaced populations. In recent years the number of forcefully displaced persons has increased significantly—to over 60 million—when compared, for example, to population growth or general migration. This rise has been caused by new displacement crises such as in Yemen and South Sudan, coupled with protracted crises such as in Syria and Afghanistan, and low numbers of returnees. The clear majority of these displacement crises have been generated primarily by armed conflicts.
