Internal displacement mid-year figures (January-June 2017)
August 2017

Provisional estimates based on data available show that conflict, violence and disasters have caused more than 9 million new internal displacements globally in the first half of 2017.

Of the 9.1 million new internal displacements, 4.6 million were caused by conflict, a figure which is already two-thirds of last year’s total. Disaster displacement continues at an unabated pace too with 4.5 million new displacements across 350 events.
Please note this is based on information available as of the end of June 2017 and covers 29 countries for conflict-related displacement and 76 countries for disaster-related displacement.
