Number of world's refugees double that of ten years ago | DW News



 The number of people fleeing wars, violence or civil disorder rose again last year even as the coronavirus pandemic brought much of the world to a standstill. 

By the end of 2020 there were 82.4 million people forcibly displaced from their homes. That's according to the United Nations' Refugee Agency. It is double the number a decade ago.
More than two thirds of those officially recognized as refugees came from just 5 countries. Syria, Venezuela, Afghanistan, South Sudan and Myanmar. 

Now, for the first time, Pakistan is registering Afghan refugees residing in the country.  
Registered refugees are issued a biometric identity card. Many children born here have never been registered at all. It's hoped the data will give international aid agencies a clearer picture of the needs in the refugee community.

Pakistani authorities have tried to encourage refugees to return home. Families are being interviewed to determine if they are ready to make the move after NATO troops leave Afghanistan. Their new ID cards are only valid until 2023.....
