Displacements in Africa

Africa has consistently experienced more displacement associated with conflict and violence than any other region in the world over the past decade, and annual average figures have increased sharply. This is according to The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC), the world's authoritative source of data and analysis on internal displacement, which recorded more than seven-point-five million new displacements triggered by conflict and violence in 2018 alone. The IDMC report that was launched early this month shows that the scale of displacement is likely to continue unabated. For more on this, Lebogang Mabange speaks to Vicente Anzellini, Coordinator of the Global Report on Internal Displacement.
