Due to multiple crisis and conflicts worldwide, global population of forcibly displaced people increased substantially in the last decade. 42.7 million people were forcibly displaced in 2007, reaching 68.5 million in 2017. 25.4 million of the forcibly displaced are refugees. Durable solutions are necessary for the protection of refugees and improving their wellbeing. Additionally actions regarding child specific outcomes like education are important since 52 percent of the refugees are children. Effective solutions require collaborative efforts from multiple partners including international organizations, donors and host countries. Development Analytics focuses on forced migration and refugees in its work programme in the Middle East and Africa region with a focus on Turkey and Lebanon, specializing in mixed methods evaluations for the assessment of the projects providing support for refugees.
