Emergency Transit Mechanism Rwanda Appeal

On 10 September 2019, the Government of Rwanda signed an agreement in Addis Ababa with the African Union (AU) and UNHCR to provide urgent and lifesaving assistance to African refugees and asylum-seekers currently being held in detention centers in Libya. This MoU followed a generous offer from Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame to host up to 30,000 vulnerable people at risk and stranded in Libya. Under the MoU, UNHCR in partnership with the Government of Rwanda and the AU has established an Emergency Transit Mechanism (ETM), to facilitate the relocation of up to 500 people of concern at any given time from the conflict zones in Libya to safety in Rwanda, while continuing to seek durable solutions options in and outside the country. UNHCR is therefore urgently appealing for an additional $10.5 million to implement the ETM and provide urgent lifesaving protection and assistance to those evacuated from Libya.
