The world is witnessing the highest level of displacement on record.

According to UNHCR, by the end of 2016, 65.5 million individuals were forcibly displaced worldwide due to persecution, conflict, violence, and human rights violations. That was an increase of 300,000 people over the previous years, and the world's displaced population is still at a record high. Also, 10.3 million people were newly displaced during the year, and the speed of new displacements was equal to 20 people every minute.

Under such circumstances, offering a "land" and resettling those innocent people in war properly, not only by providing temporary camps but also by enabling them to continue their everyday lives and the development of their society, is the core part of this proposal.
