  • Description

The Global Report on Internal Displacement (GRID) is IDMC's annual overview of the world's most significant situations of internal displacement. It highlights the policies and investments needed to address the issue and flags current knowledge and data gaps.


This year's GRID presents data on internal displacement for 2017. Results show that the number of new internal displacements caused both by conflict and disasters reached 30.6 million. Those associated with conflict and violence almost doubled, from 6.9 million in 2016 to 11.8 million in 2017. New displacements associated with disasters accounted for 18.8 million. The report also includes regional overviews and specific country spotlights that provide more in-depth analysis.
