Summary of needs, targets & requirements
Education is a basic human right, enshrined in both the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child. And during times of displacement, education plays an additional, crucial role in fostering social cohesion, addressing psychosocial needs, and providing a safe and stable environment for those who need it most.

Refugee emergency in Europe: UNHCR appeals for USD 128 million
Long considered an example of stability in a volatile region, Djibouti is now facing a precarious security situation. The country plays a signi cant role in international efforts to combat piracy in the region, and supports the restoration of peace in Somalia; however these efforts have led to threats of reprisal attacks.
This chapter provides a summary of the general environment in which UNHCR is operating in Africa and the organization’s planned responses in 2015. Mention is made of the two major emergency situations in the Central African Republic and South Sudan which have affected operations in many neighbouring countries and will continue to have a significant impact on UNHCR’s work in 2015 and beyond.
| Overview |
Owing to its geographical location and to geopolitical developments, Ethiopia is likely to receive more people seeking refuge from neighbouring countries in 2015 and beyond. The Government maintains an open-door-policy and continues to allow humanitarian access and protection to those seeking refuge on its territory.
Longtemps considéré comme un modèle de stabilité dans une région en proie à des troubles incessants, Djibouti doit maintenant faire face à une situation de sécurité précaire.
Djibouti joue un rôle important dans les efforts internationaux de lutte contre la piraterie dans la région et soutient le rétablissement de la paix en Somalie ; toutefois, en raison de ses interventions, le pays a été menacé d’attentats à titre de représailles.
Les violences qui ont éclaté au Soudan du Sud en décembre 2013 ont fait peser un fardeau supplémentaire sur une sous-région déjà très instable, en proie à d’incessants confl¬its et déplacements de population.
The eruption of violence in South Sudan in December 2013 placed an additional burden on an already volatile subregion, which continues to suffer from conflict and displacement.
Nine months into the South Sudan crisis, there were approximately 1.3 million internally displaced people (IDPs) and more than 450,000 new South Sudanese refugees, who fled to Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda.
