On June 21th, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) released their Projected Global Resettlement Needs Assessment for 2023.
According to this report, more than 2 million refugees will be in need of resettlement next year. The 2023 figure represents a 36 per cent increase compared to resettlement needs for 2022, of 1.47 million.
This rise is attributed to the humanitarian impacts of the pandemic, the multitude of various protracted refugee situations, and the emergence of new displacement situations over the past year.
