Nine countries in Asia and Oceania experienced active armed conflicts in 2021 (two more than in 2020). These consisted of three in South Asia (section III), namely Afghanistan (major internationalized civil war), India (low-intensity combined interstate border and subnational armed conflicts) and Pakistan (high-intensity combined interstate border and subnational armed conflicts); four in South East Asia (section IV), namely a major armed conflict in Myanmar and low-intensity subnational armed conflicts in Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand; and a new low-intensity interstate conflict in Central Asia between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, where an outbreak of border clashes resulted in more than 25 battle-related deaths, taking it above the armed conflict threshold. Total conflict-related fatalities in Asia and Oceania increased by 59 per cent in 2021 (having fallen by nearly 50 per cent in 2020), mostly due to conflict-related fatalities increasing in Afghanistan, Myanmar and Pakistan.
