Mid-year figures: Internal displacement from January to June 2019

Source(s):  Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC)

IDMC’s mid-year figures reveal the most significant new internal displacements associated with conflict, violence and disasters around the world between January and June 2019. The report serves as an important temperature gauge of global displacement halfway through the year, looking ahead to the trends and patterns expected in the months to come.

The report reveals that in today’s changing climate, mass displacement triggered by extreme weather events is becoming the norm. There were about 10.8 million new displacements worldwide between January and June 2019, 7 million of which were linked to disasters. Weather-related hazards were again responsible for the highest disaster displacement figures, and the major storms of the first half of 2019 were particularly intense.
