A record number of people worldwide were displaced last year, according to the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre. Its research shows nearly 76 million people were forced from their homes. Most were displaced by conflict and violence; others by natural disasters. Nearly half were in Africa. The UN says the conflict in Sudan has caused the world’s worst displacement crisis. This report says that by the end of last year, more than 9 million people had been forced to flee. Israel’s war on Gaza forcibly displaced 1.7 million people in the three months between October and December. And 4.7 million people in Turkey and Syria are living in temporary shelters and containers after devastating earthquakes there. Sara Pantuliano is the Chief Executive of the think-tank: Overseas Development Institute. She's also led the UN Development Programme's Sudan Peacebuilding Unit. She says this displacement is unprecedented.
