Average expected number of displacements per year – for sudden-onset hazards:
IDMC’s estimate of the total number of IDPs in Palestine is based on an analysis of data obtained from OCHA, the Shelter Cluster and the BADIL Resource Centre for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights. The figure includes people newly displaced in 2018 and people displaced for several decades about whom only limited up-to-date information is available.
IDMC’s estimate of the number of new displacements in 2018 consists of people displaced in the West Bank as a result housing damage and destruction, evictions, sealing off of properties and confiscations. IDMC’s estimate of the number of partial solutions is based on an analysis of shelter cluster data on the number of houses reconstructed in Gaza in 2018.
