Displacement and Poverty in South East Burma
This new report from The Thailand Burma Border Consortium (TBBC) finds forced displacement in South East Burma is at its highest level in a decade, rising from an average of 75,000 per year, to 112,000. This excludes an estimated 25,000 in Kachin State. If these are included, forced displacement has almost doubled. Furthermore, these figures do not cover all areas where displacement is happening.
The number of villages destroyed or abandoned was 105, an average of two villages a week. The total number of villages destroyed since 1996 is now 3,700.
