World refugee and forced migration problems are developing fast.

More than 50 million people around the world were displaced from their homes by the end of 2013, according to the U.N. Almost half of them are women and children. As their numbers grow, major efforts are underway to help many resettle. But as CCTV’s Leland Lazarus reports, that may not be enough.
