Joint Assessment Mission Report Assistance to the Bhutanese Refugees in Nepal
PDF File Size: 540 KB | Download   
The 2008 Joint Assessment Mission was held from 9 through 20 June. Representatives from UNHCR and WFP and two donor representatives (ECHO, and the US Embassy) based in Kathmandu accompanied their colleagues based in Damak in the far eastern areas of the Terai in Nepal for three days of field visits in the camps. The Mission participants were divided into three teams, each with specific areas of focus. The findings and recommendations of each team were consolidated and presented to the entire mission members and the implementing partners in Damak. They were then revised and presented to the Country Directors of UNHCR and WFP in Kathmandu and then the Government of Nepal. The most significant change since the last Joint Assessment Mission is the possibility of resettlement. Although UNHCR has pursued all three durable solutions, repatriation has never been agreed to in the talks between Bhutan and Nepal. Local settlement has never been possible in Nepal, and only at the end of 2007 was resettlement offered as a durable solution with a core group of resettlement countries agreeing to accept up to 70,000 of the refugees over the next five years.
