Given how cold the weather was these last days, I'd welcome a little more global warming. And if the sea-level rises another meter I'll better add another 5m of chain to my anchor-locker to compensate for it (at a 5:1 scope)

In 2020, more people displaced by extreme climate than conflict
At the end of 2020, a record 55 million people had been forced to move within their countries due to extreme weather events, more than three times those displaced due to conflict and violence, and costing economies about $20.5 billion globally in 2020.
People who migrated domestically due to extreme weather events rose to 30.7 million, or 75% of those uprooted within their borders, according to a report by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre [iDMC]. A record 55 million people in total had been forced to move at the end of 2020, with the number of climate migrants likely to be significantly underestimated due to incomplete data.

“In 2020, conflict and disasters triggered 40.5 million new internal displacements across 149 countries and territories.”

The world’s most neglected crises
The Norwegian Refugee Council [NRC] unveiled its annual index of the 10 most neglected displacement crises in the world.
Countries in Africa dominated this year’s list of the world’s 10 most neglected displacement crises once again, with DRC topping the list, followed by Cameroon, Burundi, Venezuela, Honduras, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Central African Republic and Mali.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has the world’s most neglected number of displaced people, according to a new report by the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).
Unveiling its annual index, the aid agency said that a recorded two million people were displaced last year in the DRC. And with 27 million people, including more than three million children who do not know where their next meal is coming from, it has the greatest number of people in the world who face food insecurity.

Months at sea: Boat carrying Rohingya washes up in Indonesia

A boat carrying 81 Rohingya refugees has washed ashore at an uninhabited island [Idaman Island] in Indonesia after drifting for more than 100 days at sea, leading to a tense standoff with local authorities as to whether they will be allowed to enter the country [Indonesia] or be driven back to sea.

The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) says that 2020 was the deadliest year on record for refugees crossing the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea, the favoured sea route for Rohingya, attempting to reach Southeast Asia, from the sprawling refugee camps in Bangladesh.

Of the 2,413 people known to have travelled in 2020, 218 died or went missing at sea, the UNHCR said in a new report: “Left Adrift at Sea: Dangerous Journeys of Refugees Across the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea” [1], which was released on Thursday. That made an already dangerous journey eight times more deadly than in 2019.

The agency noted that many countries, in Southeast Asia, tightened their borders, as part of their response to the coronavirus pandemic, leaving many refugees stranded at sea. That number was the highest since the region’s “boat crisis” of 2015.

In contrast to earlier periods, where most of those travelling were men, the UN said the majority of passengers were now women and children, who were at greater risk of abuse by smugglers.
