2,400 people arrived by sea and 1,100 by land this month. The shortage of accommodation countrywide has led to overcrowding in some mainland sites while in Lesvos, Chios and Samos, 11,400 live in centres intended for 5,100. Many sleep in makeshift shelter while the high, summer temperatures increased hardship particularly for the vulnerable. Overcrowding and limited services increase protection risks. UNHCR’s top official urged authorities to find accommodation, ease overcrowding, boost services and improve living conditions.

Libya continues to be the main transit point for departure from North Africa towards Europe. UNHCR's interventions at disembarkation points in Libya focus on the provision of life-saving assistance and protection monitoring, to identify persons in need of international protection, as well as vulnerable individuals, such as unaccompanied and separated children, elderly, medical cases, women at risk or victims of trafficking. UNHCR through its partner International Medical Corps provides medical services and core relief items.
