Government of Nepal and UNHCR to conduct census of the Bhutanese refugees in camps in eastern Nepal
PDF File Size: 48 KB | Download   
In a joint operation, the Government of Nepal and the UN refugee agency is conducting a census of some106,000 Bhutanese refugees in the seven camps in Jhapa and Morang district of eastern Nepal. The census will begin as of 15 November 2006 in Beldangi I refugee camp. It is intended that the exercise will be carried out on a camp by camp basis over the next few months. The exact dates of the start of the census in other camps will be announced separately at the appropriate time. The census team will be made up of UNHCR-trained persons who will conduct the interviews in close co-operation and collaboration with the officials of the Government of Nepal to both count and update basic bio-data and profile of the refugees. The refugee agency’s newly developed progres software will be used to log an accurate record of the number of refugees and to collect other related information. A digital photograph will be taken of each individual refugee with the view to issuing photo identity cards after the completion of the census process. Since the arrival of these persons over 16 years ago, data on individual Bhutanese refugees has been limited and not maintained and updated in a systematic manner. Existing information and data thus needs to be validated, cross checked, updated and recorded in a new database system. “A reliable census data will help the Government of Nepal and UNHCR to provide better protection, security and support to the refugees on the basis of improved documentation on “who is who” and “who is where” to be able to respond to individual needs,” said Abraham Abraham, UNHCR Representative in Nepal.
