Committee on Migration, Refugees and Displaced Persons
In the draft resolution, replace paragraph 6 with the following paragraph:
"For 2014, the UNHCR has estimated that globally 958 429 people are in need of resettlement, though only 80 000 resettlement places are currently available. This does not include the additional call for 30 000 places needed in 2014 following the massive outflow of refugees from Syria into neighbouring countries and the deteriorating situation both in Syria and its neighbouring countries."
Explanatory Note :
This amendment updates figures. The word “urgently” was deleted because for 2014, the call has been fulfilled
