Refugees and displaced persons

In 2000, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) provided assistance to 21.1 million persons throughout the world, a decrease from 22.3 million the previous year. More than half of those people (12.1 million) were refugees, 5.5 million were internally displaced persons, 900,000 were asylum-seekers, 800,000 had repatriated, and almost 1.7 million were in other special situations. While there were no new refugee emergencies on the scale experienced in the previous few years, UNHCR continued to face challenging refugee and forced displacement situations, often exacerbated by natural disasters.
