The global refugee population will exceed 100 million by the end of 2022

By the end of 2021, according to a UNHCR assessment, the global refugee population escaping war, persecution, and conflict would have surpassed 89 million. This figure is up 8% from the previous year and will exceed 100 million by the end of 2022.

By the end of 2021, more than two-thirds of all refugees and displaced people came from just five countries, and the top 10 countries made up more than 80% of the total number. According to our statistics, Syria has the largest displaced people from its native country, with 6.8 million. Venezuelans are the second-largest group relocated across international borders, with virtually all of them residing in the Americas. The most recent estimate of displaced Afghans is 2.75 million, the third-highest number in the world. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that the number of South Sudanese refugees will increase from 2.2 million in 2020 to 2.4 million by the end of 2021, with virtually all of them residing in Uganda (958,900), Sudan (803,600), Ethiopia (381,800), and Kenya (135,300).

In addition, these statistics grew due to new birth registration, fresh estimates of displacements, and updates after the backlog from 2020, when registration began in 2021 following a COVID-19-related suspension.

This figure does not yet represent more current occurrences, as the study only covers the period from January to December 2021. In 2022, Ukraine will be one of the nations with the highest number of refugees, with 5.1 million having fled the country by mid-June.
