déménagements pour cause de catastrophes

32 millions de personnes obligées de quitter leur domicile en 2012.
à cause d'inondations, tempêtes ou tremblements de terre.

dont 1 million 3 dans les "pays riches", surtout aux USA.

98% of all displacement in 2012 was related to climate- and weather-related events, with flood disasters in India and Nigeria accounting for 41% of global displacement in 2012.  In India, monsoon floods displaced 6.9 million, and in Nigeria 6.1 million people were newly displaced.  While over the past five years 81% of global displacement has occurred in Asia, in 2012 Africa had a record high for the region of 8.2 million people newly displaced, over four times more than in any of the previous four years.
