Refugees and migrants continue to move in large numbers from Sub-Saharan Africa to North Africa and across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe.
Libya remains the main point of departure for the majority of refugees and migrants from Africa hoping to reach Europe.
While on the move, refugees and migrants face intolerably high risks of grave human rights violations and death.
UNHCR is rolling out a three-pronged cross-regional strategy with broad objectives and selected activities in the countries of origin and transit in Sub-Saharan
Africa, and countries in North Africa and Europe.
In order to assist an estimated 656,280 people of concern by the end 2018, UNHCR is appealing for $226.6 million for January to December 2018.
