Horn of Africa Somalia Situation
Somalia is at the heart of one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world today. Twenty years of conflict and waves of drought have uprooted a quarter of the country’s 7.5 million people. As the region faces its most severe drought in 60 years, the Somali exodus is growing fast. The refugees urgently need medical aid and high-protein, high-energy food. They also need clean water, shelter and basic services in the camps.
Mali Situation
Following violence, hostilities, human rights violations and a rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation in the northern part of Mali since January 2012, large numbers of Malians have been seeking refuge in Burkina Faso, Mauritania and Niger or displaced internally.
Nigeria Situation
Northern Nigeria’s conflict with Boko Haram spilled over to the Lake Chad Basin region, where Nigerian refugees are hosted since 2014, causing large scale forced displacement and an unprecedented humanitarian emergency in Cameroon, Chad and Niger.
South Sudan
Since December 2013, brutal conflict in South Sudan has claimed thousands of lives and driven well over a million of people from their homes
Central African Republic Regional Refugee Response
The Central African Republic (CAR) is one of the world’s poorest countries. It has been troubled by unrest for decades, but when a coup led by Seleka rebels ousted the president in March 2013, an already fragile population was plunged into crisis
Voluntary Return of Ivorian Refugees
Today, there are 25,000 Ivorian refugees hosted in Ghana, Guinea, Liberia and Togo. Since 2011, UNHCR has facilitated the voluntary return in safety and dignity of over 65,000 Ivorian refugees and and continues to do so.
Yemen Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan
Humanitarian actors involved in the response to the outflow of civilians from Yemen due to the current conflict are committed to providing life-saving assistance and protection to those fleeing Yemen, pending durable solutions.
Burundi Situation
The civil unrest in Burundi has led to an outflow of over 210,000 refugees (as of 31 October 2015) to neighbouring countries of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Rwanda, Tanzania, and as far away as Uganda and Zambia. It started in Bujumbura in April 2015, with a peak in June, ahead of the contested Presidential election that took place on 21 July 2015. Since then, a tense political crisis and a climate of fear and intimidation have spread throughout the country.
DRC Situation
The DRC hosts more than 400,000 refugees (UNHCR/DRC, August 2016), who are mainly from the Central Africa Republic (CAR), Burundi and Rwanda, as well as former Angolan refugees
Thailand-Myanmar Cross Border Portal
The Information Management Common Service Portal is open to all humanitarian organizations as a way to help disseminate information that will assist refugees - in the nine Temporary Shelters located along Thailand’s border with Myanmar - in reaching freely informed decisions concerning their future lives, including the possibility of a voluntary return home
Iraq CCCM Overview
The ongoing armed conflict in Iraq has resulted in more than 3 million people fleeing from their homes and seeking alternate protection in Iraq. Internally displaced persons (IDPs) are currently living in more than 2,000 temporary settlements, as well as other non-camp accommodation (e.g. host families, rented) throughout Iraq.
Stateless in West Africa
According to UNHCR estimates, statelessness affects up to 10 million people worldwide, over 1 million of which are in West Africa. There are many factors contributing to the risk of statelessness in the region, which suggest that the population at risk is very large.
