UNHCR Country Operations Plan 2004 - Nepal
PDF File Size: 34 KB | Download   
Nepal is not a signatory to the 1951 Convention or the 1967 Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees. No national legislation relating to asylum-seekers and refugees exists. At the request of the Government of Nepal, UNHCR has been playing an active advisory, co-ordination and monitoring role in protection and provision of humanitarian assistance to refugees and persons of concern. In 2004, UNHCR will continue to ensure the basic rights of asylum seekers and refugees being respected in accordance with internationally recognised principles.
Bhutanese populations: The year 2004 will mark the 13th year since arrival of this population in Nepal. Solutions have been sought through bilateral negotiations between the Governments of Nepal and Bhutan. However, durable solutions for this population are still elusive. As the current policy of the Government of Nepal to first explore voluntary repatriation through the bilateral process and then determine other solutions, the camp population is fully dependant on external support from UNHCR and donor communities.
The beneficiary population is estimated to be approximately 104,000 in 2004 considering the annual population growth (1.5 percent). This figure may be adjusted downward as durable solutions could be found for some of the populations towards the end of 2003. Due to the prolonged stay in the camps, the problems of the refugees such as increased tension with residents, depression, suicide, domestic violence, alcoholism, sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) have become more pronounced. In 2004, UNHCR will therefore, put durable solutions in the forefront while intensifying protection, monitoring and strengthening the role of UNHCR and that of its partners in the delivery of humanitarian assistance. Particular attention will be paid to involve the growing number of youth idle in camps and who have completed their secondary education, in camp activities through strengthening community services. The youths will be involved in raising awareness on gender issues, children rights, prevention of SGBV and domestic violence.
