The National: New tool predicts coronavirus will displace millions of Africans

The National: New tool predicts coronavirus will displace millions of Africans. “A new tool has predicted the displacement of over a million people in the Sahel, as Covid-19 creates havoc across the brittle region. In some countries, such as Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger and Nigeria, the pandemic is expected to increase forced displacement by more than 14 percentage points. This is the equivalent of a minimum of an additional one million people being displaced across the four countries if no action is taken.”
