Just over one million civilians who have fled their homes to escape violence and instability in recent years currently reside in the Kurdistan Region, the latest official numbers released by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) show.

In a report published on Sunday, January 12, the KRG said it needs close to $1 billion yearly to sustain aid to both refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

This year, the Kurdistan Region hosts a total of 1,050,317 individuals, costing nearly $1 billion, indicating a decrease of displaced people compared to a year ago.
