Developing countries host over 86% of the world’s refugees, compared to 70% ten years ago. In 2014, the country hosting the largest number of refugees was Turkey, with 1.59 million refugees. Last year, 51% of refugees were under 18 years old. An estimated 13.9 million people were newly displaced due to conflict or persecution, including 2.9 million new refugees.
