Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

Successful presidential elections were held on 11 October 2015 and allayed fears of upheaval in the country.  Shortly after, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced on December 29, 2015 the end of the Ebola outbreak in Guinea.

Since the outbreak began in March 2014, the socio-economic life of the country was disrupted.  While the health sector was particularly affected, other sectors, including education, air transport, mining and trade, also suffered serious consequences.

With the closure of the border with Côte d’Ivoire due to Ebola Virus Disease, the voluntary repatriation of Ivorian refugees from Guinea remained suspended till the first half of 2016.  

Guinea has also taken a number of steps to ensure that human rights are respected.  The Department of Justice continued the reform of the judicial sector, with the establishment of a Commission for the reform of criminal law and the Higher Council of the judiciary.  

Key priorities

In 2017, UNHCR’s operation will focus on:
•    Strengthening the legal framework in the country, following the adoption of the asylum law by the National Assembly and its promulgation by the President in 2016;
•    Working with the government to facilitate the local integration of refugees willing to do so;
•    Providing targeted assistance to Ivorian refugees voluntarily returning to Côte d’Ivoire in 2017;
•    Processing the resettlement submissions for some 500 refugees to third countries by the end of 2017, including Liberians in need of international protection, Sierras Leonean refugees and other refugees from other nationalities;
•    Strengthening the self-reliance of refugees through livelihoods programmes.
