People of Concern
Working environmentNepal has not acceded to the 1951 Refugee Convention or the 1967 Protocol and has not established a national legal framework concerning asylum-seekers and refugees. Nevertheless, Nepal has a long tradition of providing asylum to refugees and the government is expected to collaborate closely with UNHCR to jointly address challenges.
Key prioritiesIn 2020, UNHCR will prioritize achieving solutions for protacted refugees; promoting self-reliance through greater livelihood opportunities; enhancing community-based protection; reinforcing inclusion with enhanced access to public services and synergy with host communities; and improving engagement with development actors and development processes such as the UNDAF.
By the end of the year, UNHCR intends to close the office in eastern Nepal in anticipation of having achieved key milestones in providing local solutions for Bhutanese refugees.
