Myanmar: Internal Displacement Snapshot - Kachin and northern Shan States (May 2013)
The number of registered IDPs in Kachin and in northern Shan reached more than 85,000, including over 50,000 (58.5 per cent) in areas beyond the Government control. Resurgence of conflict in late 2012 triggered the displacement of several thousand additional IDPs. However, since the resumption of peace talks in February 2013, the flow of newly displaced people has lessened.
