Global program on forced displacement annual progress report : July 2012 - December 2013 (English)

This report covers the period 1 July 2012 to 31 December 2013. During 2012, forced displacement of people by armed conflict or other forms of violence affected 44.2 million people comprising 28.8 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) and 15.2 million refugees. This represents an increase of 2.4 million IDPs vis-a-vis 2011 and the highest figure ever recorded, mainly due to the conflicts in Syria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The objective of the global program on forced displacement (GPFD) is to improve the contribution of the World Bank and other key actors to an enhanced development response to forced displacement that supports economically and socially sustainable solutions. GPFD works on the following three categories of displacement situations: (i) emerging crises, (ii) protracted displacement, and (iii) situations where solutions have been found whether in displacement or return situations.
