IOM Framework for Addressing Internal Displacement

The scale of internal displacement has risen to unprecedented levels. Over 40 million people are currently displaced by conflict inside their own countries, a number that represents 62 per cent of the total number of displaced persons worldwide. In addition, disasters displace an average of 26 million people annually. The course of internal displacement is set to continue given the increased frequency, intensity and duration of contemporary conflicts, a general lack of political solutions to resolve the drivers of displacement, and the rising risks associated with environ- mental degradation, climate change and other sudden-impact or slow-onset disasters. Internal displacement has become an increasingly global and protracted phenomenon that requires concerted global attention.
