Conflict and disasters displaced 30.6 million people within their own countries last year, according to a new report from the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).

15,000 people displaced every day inside African countries, according to new IDMC report. IDMC's director calls on the development sector to join humanitarians in preventing and reducing internal displacement and finding long-term solutions for the millions of people affected.

India is among top three Asian nations after the Philippines and China where large number of people have been displaced due to disasters as 19.3 million people were displaced globally last year alone, according to the latest estimates released by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC). 

The report forecasts an increased risk of global displacement caused by disasters, and calls for a stronger link between displacement and disaster risk reduction. It also applies the concept of risk to disaster-related displacement while quantifying human displacement risk around the world.
