Average expected number of displacements per year – for sudden-onset hazards:
IDMC’s estimate of the total number of IDPs in Georgia refers to three caseloads. The first two concern IDPs in South Ossetia assessed by OHCHR and OCHA, in 2008 and 2009. The third refers to the number of IDPs in 11 provinces, based on data provided by Georgia’s Ministry of IDPs from the Occupied Territories, Accommodation and Refugees in February 2018. The displacements took place in two major waves, both associated with conflict with the Russian Federation in 1991-1992 and 2008.
