Afghans internally displaced in 2021

An estimated 748,000 Afghans were newly displaced internally in 2021. Nearly 97 per cent of these new internal displacements in Afghanistan happened due to conflict and violence (IDMC, 2022).

This is much higher than the global share of new displacements due to conflict and violence which accounted for almost 38 per cent of all new internal displacements in 2021 (GMDAC analysis based on IDMC, 2022).
