During the first nine months of 2018, just under 25,100 refugees were submitted by UNHCR for resettlement' to 19 countries in Europe.2 This is 24% less than the same period in 2017, but already two-thirds more than the average rate of 15,400 submissions per year during the previous 10 years.
During 2017, almost 38,900 refugees were submitted by UNHCR for resettlement1 to 25 countries in Europe,2 36% more than during 2016 and over three times greater than the average rate of 12,400 submissions per year during the last decade.
Between 2007 and 2016, Europe’s proportion of resettlement sub-missions globally has increased from approximately 9% to more than 18%, and in 2017 reached 52%. This is primarily due to a significant decrease globally in new submissions for resettlement, most notably to the United States of America.

La sécheresse dans la Corne de l’Afrique, la pire depuis 60 ans, menace la survie de centaines de milliers de personnes. La situation est particulièrement critique en Somalie, où l'ONU a décrété formellement la famine dans deux régions du Sud. La flambée des prix alimentaires et la poursuite du conflit dans ce pays ont entraîné d’énormes déplacements de populations. Chaque jour, des milliers de Somaliens fuient vers l’Ethiopie, le Kenya et Djibouti. Au total, 12 millions de personnes sont en danger de mort si elles ne reçoivent pas d’urgence une assistance alimentaire.
