UNHCR in 2017 – by the numbers
As of September 2017, UNHCR’s budget is at an historic high of $7.763 billion, which is currently 46% funded
This growth is concurrent with the unabated levels of global displacement, with 67.7 million people of concern to UNHCR worldwide.
The funding gap is widening, now standing at 54%. Based on indications received from donors and analysis of funding trends, UNHCR estimates the gap may reduce to 47% by year’s end.
This briefing has been been put together by a significant number of international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) under the leadership of Bond’s Humanitarian and Conflict Policy groups. These NGOs are either actively operational in these contexts or working to raise awareness in the UK of the challenges faced by people experiencing humanitarian disasters, conflict and upheaval.
Between 1 January and 31 July 2017, 25,556 refugees were submitted by UNHCR for resettlement to 22 countries in Europe, only 11% less than the total for 2016 and already 130% more than the average rate of 11,100 submissions per year during the last decade.
Recommendations for the Security Council and Member States On October 31, 2017, the UN Security Council will hold an Open Debate on Children and Armed Conflict (CAC), to take place under France’s Presidency.

Plus de 335 000 personnes continuent de souffrir de la faim dans la région du Lac, au Tchad, où seulement dix médecins travaillent actuellement et où la communauté internationale n'a financé que 40 millions de dollars sur un appel humanitaire de 121 millions de dollars.
