The Four Regions at the Heart of the Migration Crisis
Across the world today, there are more vulnerable migrants on the move than ever before.
For far too many, this is a journey of necessity, not of choice.
Some are driven from their homes by conflict or persecution, while others are desperate to escape environmental catastrophe or extreme poverty.
This report presents the true picture of this phenomenon.
It examines the dynamics of migration within the four regions at the heart of today’s migration crisis: sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia.
Between them, these four regions comprise the countries of origin of more than two-thirds of the world’s migrants, over two-thirds of the world’s refugees, and 92% of the world’s Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
