UNHCR's operation in Ecuador started in 2000 as part of the organization's strategy to protect and assist the victims of the Colombian conflict. The operation aims to support the Ecuadorian government in strengthening protection mechanisms, developing asylum and identifying solutions. It also involves distribution of humanitarian aid and public information initiatives. The refugee caseload is mostly composed of Colombian nationals.
The project supported by this TA operation is a multi-sector framework loan intended to finance the reconstruction of small scale damaged infrastructure (public buildings, social infrastructure, water and sanitation, energy supply, telecommunications, roads, recovery and risk prevention) to cope with the consequences of the earthquake of 16 April 2016 that ravaged large areas of western Ecuador.
