There were 59.1 million people living in internal displacement worldwide at the end of 2021, the highest figure on record. The exact number of children among them is unknown, but there are estimated to be about 9.9 million aged between five and 11, and 7.5 million between 12 and 17.
This report represents a first step towards bridging these knowledge gaps. It provides an overview of the data landscape on IDPs’ education and top-line estimates of the number of internally displaced boys and girls of a school age in 13 countries: Afghanistan, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Iraq, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
