Angelina Jolie says respect for human rights key to Syria peace.

Almost seven years since the start of the conflict, more than 6 million people remain displaced inside Syria and a further 5.48 million have fled to other countries in the region, creating the biggest refugee crisis since the end of the second world war.

Children play without wearing any protection at the playground while the air is engulfed with thick haze from the forest fires  in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia.

Children play without wearing any protection at the playground while the air is engulfed with thick haze from the forest fires at Sei Ahass village, Kapuas district in Central Kalimantan province on Borneo island, Indonesia.

Indonesia’s people and environment are paying for the industry’s failure. The country has lost 31 million hectares of forest – an area almost the size of Germany – since 1990. A recent study on Borneo and Sumatra orangutans showed that the population has significantly declined, with destruction of their habitat a leading cause of the crisis. Forest destruction has also contributed to the annual fires and haze crisis that threatens the health of people across Southeast Asia. One study estimated that the 2015 fires crisis contributed to over 100,000 premature deaths.

UNHCR — United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees — PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES group

PLANET EARTH LANDSCAPES has over 6,900 members and over 232,000 photos and videos. 

All PLANET EARTH groups supports UNHCR United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Full-time statisticians in UNHCR’s Field Information and Coordination Section track the number of people forced to flee so that when a major displacement crisis erupts, we are able to predict how many people need helphow much help they need and how many staff we must deploy.

These figures are released every year in our Global Trends and Global Appeal reports.

Figures at a glance

We are now witnessing the highest levels of displacement on record.

An unprecedented 65.6 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly 22.5 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18.

There are also 10 million stateless people who have been denied a nationality and access to basic rights such as education, healthcare, employment and freedom of movement.

In a world where nearly 20 people are forcibly displaced every minute as a result of conflict or persecution, our work at UNHCR is more important than ever before.
