(UNHCR) GLOBAL TRENDS REPORT: Every two seconds, someone in the world was forcibly displaced in 2017, accord ing to a new report by the U.N. Refugee Agency……. Due to wars, violence and persecution, 68.5 million people were forced to flee their homes by the end of 2017 — a record high and a trend that has continu ed for five years #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – June.19: More than half of those displaced, which included refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced people, were children, many unaccompanied or separated from their parents: Even as 5 million people returned to their country of origin, 16.2 million people were newly displaced around the world last year #AceNewsDesk reports

UNHCR’s Global Trends report found: The vast majority of the displacements affected developing nations, and overwhelmingly consisted of people who fled their homes but remained inside their own country.UNHCR dispelled several incorrect “perceptions” of the global refugee crisis. “Among these is the notion that the world’s displaced are mainly in countries of the Global North: The data shows the opposite to be true — with fully 85 per cent of refugees in developing countries,” the report said, adding, “Four out of five refugees remain in countries next door to their own.”

Just five countries — Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar and Somalia — accounted for two-thirds of all the world’s refugees, if excluding long-term Palestinians under the U.N.’s care.In 2017, Turkey remained the largest host nation, with a population of 3.5 million refugees, while Lebanon had the greatest number in comparison to its population.“We are at a watershed, where success in managing forced displacement globally requires a new and far more comprehensive approach so that countries and communities aren’t left dealing with this alone,” said Filippo Grandi U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees.

Yet even as the number of people displaced continues to climb, the space carved out for sheltering them has drastically diminished………………….Last year, just 100,000 refugees were resettled, down 40 percent on 2016: https://t.me/acenewsgroup/597063
