World Disasters Report 2012 highlights Forced Migration and Displacement

The African Union Commission (AUC), together with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), today launched the World Disasters Report 2012, Focus on Forced Migration and Displacement.

More than ever, the complex nature of disasters and conflicts is accompanied by the enormous potential to uproot large numbers of people. Globally, 73 million people are forced migrants – more than one in every 100 of the world’s citizens. Africa hosts the highest number of refugees and internally displaced persons at more than 12 million.
