Two-thirds of the millions forced to flee come from these 5 countries.
?? South Sudan
Peace and stability in just one of those countries would make an enormous difference.
It was a pleasure speaking with @IshaSesay on her #WorldRefugeeDay special.
Nearly 80 million people have been forced to flee their homes. @refugees have not seen a higher total.

Excellent news today! UNHCR and IOM announce the resumption of refugee resettlement travel.
Owing to COVID, departures were delayed for many refugees but as travel restrictions begin to ease we are working to resume movements in a safe and swift manner:
More than 1 per cent of humanity is now displaced.
I will speak to that and more global displacement trends on @IshaSesay’s #WorldRefugeeDay special today at 3pm EST, 9pm CET.

1% of the world's entire population is now displaced.
That's 79.5 million people who have been forced to flee their homes owing to conflict, persecution and insecurity.
UNHCR has not seen a higher total.
As we live through #COVID-19, we must show solidarity for those in need of support.
The Global Compact on Refugees is a key tool to achieve this. #EveryActionCounts
Join @UNHCRUK & @TRF today to discuss the challenges & opportunities of #COVID19
In higher income countries, refugees have been key workers fighting COVID-19.
In lower income countries, there are real fears of socio-economic fallout.
I’ll be discussing the challenges & opportunities of #COVID-19, and how to stand #WithRefugees.
