We are pleased to invite you to the virtual launch of our flagship report, the 2021 Global Report on Internal Displacement, which will take place on Thursday 20 May from 14:00 - 16:00 Geneva time. 

IDMC's Global Report on Internal Displacement (GRID) is the world's most trusted source of data and analysis on the risk, scale and impacts of internal displacement. Our report provides an overview of the most significant displacement situations worldwide and offers insights into challenges and opportunities for addressing and preventing displacement. In the report, we also highlight areas where data and evidence need strengthening.

This year’s report includes a special focus on disaster displacement and the impacts of climate change. As such, the report will explore the intersections of climate, disasters, and internal displacement. It will also examine the linkages between conflict and climate, the social and economic impacts of disaster displacement, and provide lessons from around the world to address and prevent disaster displacement.

Please join us on 20 May by registering here. Simultaneous interpretation in French and English will be provided.
