Number of IDPs by age at the end of 2019

Information on the age of internally displaced people (IDPs) is essential to assess their needs and design programmes that can support them at every stage of their lives. Assistance must be tailored to respond to the specific necessities and resources of each age group. 

This paper estimates the age of people who were living in internal displacement at the end of 2019 as a result of conflict, violence and disasters, using national-level demographic distribution data for 98 countries. This information is intended as a first step to inform age-sensitive planning and support to IDPs’ health, education, security, livelihoods and housing conditions.
