Unit 2: Population and Migration

 

This article features an interactive map that displays the numbers of IDPs (internally displaced persons) made by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. You are able to look through the years and see the varying amounts of IDPs, as well as the countries that produced the most of them and which continue to.

 

This goes along with the human geography theme of refugees and IDPs, and this is a very helpful article in providing a simple way to see an overview of where and to what extent this most occurs.

This is the stark face of the biggest humanitarian crisis since World War II.
dilaycock's insight:

Azraq will be the biggest refugee camp in history, and still unable to cater for the huge numbers of refugees flowing out of Syria. It's devastating  to look at the photos, and unimaginable what life will be like for those who will be forced to call this home.
