Year-end Overview

Working environment

Given the unstable socio-political situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), plans for voluntary repatriation of refugees may be undermined. Many refugees do not have access to proper documentation and are being denied protection and access to local facilities and services. UNHCR will continue to reinforce the Government’s  capacity to facilitate access to land for refugees, examine requests for the recognition of refugee status determination (RSD) and facilitate integration and/or repatriation through the delivery of proper documentation.

Key priorities

In 2017 UNHCR’s operation will focus on:
•    ensuring continuous registration of refugees; 
•    supporting the authorities in the RSD process;
•    providing health care to Central African refugees ,especially to those with specific needs;
•    responding to SGBV cases through community capacity building and projects related to income-generating activities through cash-based interventions.

In the event of a funding shortfall, assistance to people with specific needs, access to health care and local integration activities will be affected.
