    Abstract The elderly are usually the last to flee from an unfolding conflict or disaster. Once displaced, many are vulnerable to poor health and face greater obstacles to restoring livelihoods and achieving durable solutions. This article offers the authors' insights on the internally displaced elderly in Georgia and Japan, as well as IDMC’s experience with gathering sex and age disaggregated data.
