(2) The two largest events of 2012, flood disasters in north-east India and Nigeria, accounted for 41 per cent of the year’s total

(3) The vast majority of displacement is triggered by climate- and weather-related hazards (98 per cent in 2012; 83 per cent over five years)

(4) Data reveals strong patterns of frequent and repeated displacement as well as displacement on a massive scale
