The situation of forced relocation in West and Central Africa.
The number of people compelled to flee their homes in West and Central Africa increased dramatically in 2019 and 2020. By the end of 2020, the number of internally displaced individuals (IDPs) had risen to almost 5 million, an increase of more than 30% in only a year. The rapidly deteriorating situation in Burkina Faso and western Niger, Northeast, Northwest Nigeria was a major factor in this increasing trend. There are concerns that the current scenario will persist because no quick solutions to this problem are in sight.Become a Volunteer
