UNHCR Global Report 2011, Nepal
Abstract:
UNHCR’s resettlement programme for refugees in Nepal was the largest such programme globally. In 2011, it helped some 18,100 refugees, originally from Bhutan, to depart for new homes in eight countries. Some 58,500 people have been resettled since the programme began in late 2007. As the refugee population declined, UNHCR, with the support of the Government of Nepal, started consolidating the camps. The administration of the three camps in Beldangi in eastern Nepal was combined, while the Goldhap and Timai camps were closed. This left only three camps out of the original seven at the end of 2011. UNHCR, with the Government of Nepal and the UN Country Team, initiated a five-year Community-Based Development Programme aimed at promoting peaceful coexistence between refugees and the host community in Jhapa and Morang districts. In collaboration with other UN and national partners, UNHCR supported legal aid and awareness-raising to assist individuals in need of citizenship certificates. Alignment of the citizenship chapter of the new Constitution with Nepal’s international obligations was also strongly advocated. UNHCR worked closely with the Government, NGOs and refugees to provide assistance following the devastating fires at the Goldhap and Sanishare camps in March 2011. #Refugees #AsylumSeekers #UNHCR
