Forced Displacement Hits a Record 110 Million People Around the World

HeadlineJun 14, 2023

The U.N. said the global level of forced displacement has reached a record 110 million people.

Filippo Grandi: “This is where we stand today. We have 110 million people that have fled because of conflict, persecution, discrimination, violence, often mixed with other motives — in particular, the impact of climate change.”

Conflicts in Sudan and Ukraine are causing millions to flee. Syria and Afghanistan also continue to record massive numbers of refugees and displaced people. The mounting displacement crisis comes as aid agencies face severe funding shortages. The World Food Programme says it will be forced to cut aid to Syria by about half, affecting 2.5 million people in need.
