The number of refugees living in Rwanda is still estimated at 149,000, about half of whom are from the DRC and the other half are from Burundi. In addition, Rwanda will soon host 500 refugees and asylum-seekers currently in detention centers in Libya, as a result of a transit mechanism agreed upon by the Government of Rwanda, UNHCR, and the African Union. Given that refugees are gradually being integrated in national social and economic systems, while still receiving cash-based and in-kind assistance, refugees in Rwanda are expected to continue facing No Acute Food Insecurity (IPC Phase 1!) through at least February 2020.
