About 65 million people, roughly one percent of all humanity, now live in forced displacement, including refugees and the internally displaced, with populations fleeing war in Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia and Sudan, among others, the report said, noting that the current refugee crisis was the second-largest since World War II. By the end of 2015, 95 percent of this population was parked precariously in developing countries and fragile states, depressing hopes for local development in host countries and feeding social strife.
