Latest GRID figures analysis

IDMC’s estimates are based on an analysis of cases reported by key informants, as well as on data from municipal government and non-government service providers, about the number of humanitarian requests received from persons who have been forced to move out of their place of residence due to violence, disasters or climate change. It also includes decaying data related to displacements caused by the civil war which ended in the late 1990s.
