A report released in May by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre and
the Norwegian Refugee Council shows that 32.4 million people were forced to
flee their homes last
year<http://www.guardian.co.uk/global-development/picture/2013/may/20/climate-disasters-displace-millions-worldwide>
by
disasters such as floods, storms and earthquakes. Asia and west and central
Africa bore the brunt, but 1.3 million were also displaced in rich
countries, with the US particularly affected.
