Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

The number of Mozambicans fleeing insecurity to neighbouring countries, including Zimbabwe, may increase during 2017. It is estimated that a sizeable number of stateless people reside in Zimbabwe.

Despite experiencing economic challenges, the overall situation in Zimbabwe remains relatively calm, although severely impacted by heightened intra-party political tensions. The country continues to be committed to adhering to international norms and standards, and works in cooperation with humanitarian organizations. 

The Government maintains asylum space in rural and urban settings, and refugees have access to national education and health systems. The Registrar General’s Office has agreed to print and issue Machine-Readable Convention Travel Documents to refugees, if necessary funding is identified. Refugee farmers also have access to arable land in Tongogara camp to supplement their diets and improve their livelihoods. 

Key Priorities

In 2017 the UNHCR operation in Zimbabwe will focus on:

•    strengthening the asylum regime and enhance the capacity of the Zimbabwe Refugee Committee on refugee status determination;
•    providing appropriate durable solutions through targeted interventions; 
•    obtaining improved documentation for people of concern; 
•    improving mechanisms and procedures to identify people in need of international protection through border monitoring and regular visits to detention facilities;
•    providing adequate support in livelihoods and self-reliance activities to reduce economical dependency.
