Ethiopia recorded the highest number of internally displaced people (IDPs) of any country in 2021, according to a report published by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre. The armed conflict gripping the country's north since November 2020, and rising insecurity in other regions triggered the displacement of 5.1 million people, according to the report. It is three time higher than the number of IDPs recorded in 2020, and the highest annual figure ever recorded for a single country. The Centre estimates over 59 million people had been internally displaced in 2021 globally. Sub-Saharan Africa accounted for more than three-quarters of all IDPs forced to relocate by conflict and violence. The Centre is a non-governmental organisation established in 1998 by the Norwegian Refugee Council.
