This graph shows the overall increase in the amount of displaced people in the world, and it highlights the events in which this population increased juristically. In the article, it says that right now in the world, there are as many people displaced as the total population in South Africa.

 

I thought that this graph was pretty interesting because it showed the specific events that made the amount of displaced people increase, and the article also talked about this interesting subject in more detail.

How to empower local NGO partners | MUN Food Security Refugees GMO | Scoop.it
UN agencies and international NGOs (INGOs) are increasingly stressing the need to reach out to new partners, including local NGOs, to build their capacity to respond to humanitarian crises. Yet agencies are still said to “arrive, set the agenda, do their activities and leave,” said Sayadi Sani, head of the local Nigerien nutrition NGO Befen. How can aid agencies better empower local NGOs?

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.

Malala challenges world leaders to educate Syrian refugees

Pakistani education crusader Malala Yousafzai and other youth activists challenged world leaders on Monday to come up with $175 million to educate 400,000 Syrian children who fled to neighboring Lebanon to escape a civil war in their homeland.

As leaders gather in New York for the UN General Assembly, Yousafzai, 16, who was shot in the head by the Taliban last year for demanding education for girls, and UN education envoy Gordon Brown received $1 million from campaign group Avaaz to kick off the push for money to send Syrian refugees to school.
