Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

The economic crisis the Republic of Congo is facing since 2015 continues to have a significant impact on the country. In order to respond to this, the government launched "The march towards development," the President’s social project for 2016-2021 as well as the "Living together" initiative which calls for unity, dialogue and national cohesion. UNHCR has been involved in the design of both the National Development Plan (2018-2020) and the UNDAF (2020-2024) emphasizing that a clear link should be established between humanitarian and development work. Although the economic situation is expected to slightly improve in 2020, refugee self-reliance and inclusion of refugees into national systems will continue to remain a challenge.
 
In March 2016, Presidential elections led to a political and humanitarian crisis especially in the Pool Department. A peace agreement was signed in December 2017 between the Government and the militia operating in Pool Department, where the political and security situation is expected to remain stable in 2020.
 
Due to positive developments in countries of origin, refugees from the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo have improved prospects for voluntary repatriation.
 
UNHCR relies on the close cooperation with the Government of the Republic of the Congo, and its relevant line ministries. UNHCR also works in close partnership with the UN system, international and national NGOs as well as refugee committees. Based on the national protection and solutions strategy, UNHCR works to integrate refugees into existing social, education and health systems.
 
The partnership with the World Bank under the IDA 18 sub window for refugees is ongoing. The implementation will start in 2019 and continue until December 2022.

Key priorities

In 2020 UNHCR will focus on:
  • advocating with the Government for the adoption of national asylum law as well as adhesion to the statelessness conventions;
  • facilitating voluntary repatriation of refugees and asylum-seekers;
  • enhancing the economic empowerment of people of concern through implementing self-reliance initiatives;
  • improving the access of people of concern to basic needs and essential services including health, education, shelter and WASH.
