IDMC - Colombia IDP Figures Analysis


IDMC - Colombia IDP Figures Analysis: IDMC’s figure on IDPs is based on estimates provided by the government’s Integral Reparation and Assistance for Victims Unit (UARIV). As the Consultancy for Human Rights and Displacement (CODHES) has not yet published its 2014 report, there is no other available data source for comparison. This figure is cumulative and covers the period from 1985 to 2014. It does not subtract IDPs who have managed to achieve a durable solution or those who were born or who died in displacement. The breakdown by sex shows that 52.3% of the IDPs are women. 29.6% of IDPs belong to the Afro-Colombian ethnic minority (UARIV).

The figure does not include disaster-induced displacement for which as of December 2013, at least 31,700 people were displaced mainly due to heavy rains, landslides and an earthquake. In many cases there is a combination of conflict and disasters which affect IDPs.
