The world is witnessing the highest number of people fleeing conflict since the end of World War II, with approximately 71 million people forcibly displaced. To add to this, as COVID-19 spreads globally, we have seen a disproportionate impact on the world’s most vulnerable populations. Displaced populations facing widespread stigma, discriminatory regulations and restricted access to safety nets, are likely to be the hardest hit. This dramatic rise in numbers, with no foreseeable end to conflict, puts the humanitarian response and financing system under a great deal of pressure.
