18 December: International Migrants Day

‘More than 70 million people are forcibly displaced - double the level of 20 years ago, and 2.3 million more than just one year ago. It is a shocking and harrowing number. Conflicts have become more complex, and combined with trends such as climate change, population growth, rapid urbanization, and food insecurity, we can unfortunately anticipate that forced displacement and humanitarian needs will continue to increase…we have to fulfil the promises of responsibility-sharing set out in the Global Compact on Refugees.’

-António Guterres, UN Secretary-General
