Global resettlement statistics

Where do the people who need resettlement come from?

This world map shows where people who need resettlement come from (their country of origin).

These are mostly in Africa and the Middle East. The crisis in Venezuela has also increased the need for resettlement in that country and in neighbouring Colombia.

This second graph shows over the last few years the need for resettlement by the region they came from (region of origin). As can be seen, Africa and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are by far the largest regions of origin.

This chart shows the top 10 countries of origin for people needing resettlement.
