UNHCR Appeals For Support To Address Refugee Resettlement Needs In Africa
The vast unmet need for refugee resettlement from Africa and the opportunities for communities to engage in the sponsorship of refugees were two of the key themes discussed when representatives of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), governments and NGOs from resettlement states and other inter-governmental bodies gathered in Geneva for the 2017 Annual Tripartite Consultations on Resettlement (ATCR).

Since 2012, conflict driven by political and religious tensions has disrupted livelihoods and food security in the Central African Republic (CAR), a poor, rural nation reliant on subsistence agriculture. As of June 2017, at least 2.2 million people in CAR—approximately half of the country’s population—are in urgent need of emergency assistance, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reports.
• Ongoing conflict in CAR displaces 534,000 people
• Nearly 60,000 people flee to DRC
• Aid agencies temporarily suspend operations in parts of CAR
• UN warns of disrupted services and violence against children
