Over the past decade, the number of wars has tripled and in 2016, more countries were experiencing violent conflict than at any time in nearly 30 years.
Wars can only be ended by the parties to the conflict and their supporters. An important part of ending war and restoring peace is the resolution of internal displacement caused by the conflict. And for that peace to last, internally displaced persons should participate in the process.
Conflicts and climatic shocks aggravate current food insecurity in many countries
Some 39 countries in need of food assistance - FAO expects slightly lower global cereal production

57 leaders of faith and religious organisations, groups and communities, call for national governments and their leaders to ensure that internally displaced people get the help they need
The world is rapidly urbanizing and so is internal displacement. Yet we—humanitarians—often fail to properly understand how displaced people cope in such settings and how to better support them. In light of this, we embarked on a study over the last year to reflect on how we can improve humanitarian responses in urban environments.
Internal displacement is at an unprecedented global peak.
The number of people forcibly displaced within their own countries by armed conflict and other situations of violence has steadily risen in this century – resulting in more than 40 million internally displaced throughout the world in 2016.
Bringing together the views of more than 100,000 people, the Peace Perceptions Poll sought to answer questions around how people experience and respond to violent conflict, and and how they think their government should respond to conflict.
More countries are experiencing violent conflict now than at any time in the past 30 years. People have been displaced from their homes at a rate not seen since the Second World War. The cost of conflict is currently estimated at US$1.04 trillion a year.
Thousands of people are fleeing the anglophone regions by bus, fearing escalating violence ahead of the 7 October election. Local authorities are tightening border controls while secessionists try to block access to/from the region.

En mai 2016, le Sommet humanitaire mondial a appelé à un changement dans la gestion, la planification et la mise en œuvre de l’action humanitaire. Dans son rapport Une seule humanité, des responsabilités partagées 1 , en amont de ce sommet, le Secrétaire général des Nations unies a lancé un appel mondial afin de « changer la vie des gens : passer de la fourniture de l’aide à la fin des besoins ».
The impacts of climate change are increasingly viewed as global security risks, which will have far-reaching implications for both human and renewable natural systems. Most climate–conflict research has focused on East Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. This SIPRI Insights explores and summarizes the findings from a systematic literature review of climate–conflict research on South Asia and South East Asia.
Africa still hosts the largest number of displaced people worldwide. In 2017, some 24.2 million people in Africa were forced to flee as the result of conflict, persecution, other human rights abuses and food insecurity. Few political solutions were in sight.
This report presents two types of Flow Monitoring dashboards for each country.

IOM works with national and local authorities, as well as community-based organizations, to better understand migration movements in West and Central Africa.
