Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Refugee Displacement Surged in 2020 Despite Covid-19: Reports UN” – below is their description.
The U.N. refugee agency says war, violence, persecution and human rights violations caused nearly 3 million people to flee their homes last year despite the Covid-19 crisis that restricted movements worldwide as countries shut borders and ordered lockdowns.
“Covid-19 seems to have had no impact on some of the key root causes that push people to flee,” said Filippo Grandi, the U.N. high commissioner for refugees.
In its latest Global Trends report released on Friday, UNHCR says the cumulative total of displaced people has risen to 82.4 million — a figure comparable to the population of Germany.
It marks the ninth straight annual increase in the number of people forcibly displaced.
Grandi said conflict and the impact of climate change in places like Mozambique, Ethiopia’s Tigray region and Africa’s broad Sahel region were among the leading sources of new flows of refugees and internally displaced people in 2020.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
