U.A.E. has lost one-third of its population since 2008, with a fourth living in camps and refugee camps in the country, according to data from the United Nations.
The United Nations refugee agency said on Monday that the number of refugees settling in the United States rose by nearly 4.5 million people in 2016, an increase of more than 1.4 million from the previous year.
That was more than any other year in U.H.S.-era history.
More than half of the refugees settled in the U.P.C.R. camps, or in camps of about 300 people or less, are Muslims, the U,N.
said in a statement.
The U.U.S., the second-largest refugee host in the world after China, is struggling to keep pace with the influx of refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and other war-torn countries, the agency said.
The influx of people fleeing violence and persecution is creating an acute shortage of jobs, particularly in the health and education sectors.
