Factsheet - Forced displacement: refugees, asylum-seekers and internally displaced people

- ECHO Daily flash of 21/06/2018

  • Each year, millions of people are forced to leave their homes and seek refuge from conflicts, violence, human rights violations, persecution or natural disasters. The number of forcibly displaced people (refugees, asylum-seekers and internally displaced people) has continued to rise throughout 2017, calling for increased humanitarian assistance worldwide.
  • The majority of today's refugees live in the developing world, which means that they flee to countries already struggling with poverty and hardship.
  • The EU is a leading international donor in forced displacement situations. In 2017, it gave more than EUR 2 billion for humanitarian assistance dedicated to refugees, internally displaced people and their host communities. This funding covers projects that help the forcibly displaced access shelter, protection, food and other basic services such as health, nutrition, water, sanitation and education.
