Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

Myanmar will continue to be characterized by a combination of statelessness and protracted internal displacement, while being the country of origin for the majority of refugees in the South-East Asia region.

Myanmar has recently experienced significant changes in its political landscape with the conclusion of the nationwide ceasefire agreement (NCA) in October 2015 and the formation of a new government led by the National League for Democracy (NLD) in April 2016. With political dialogue and the peace process being the first priorities for the new Government, it is anticipated that these developments will offer new opportunities for UNHCR to engage the Government on durable solutions for internally displaced people (IDPs) and refugees from Myanmar in Thailand, as well as to advocate improved rights for the stateless population. Nonetheless, restrictions on the freedom of movement of the stateless population and IDPs in Rakhine, as well as sporadic armed clashes in the north-eastern part of the country, are likely to continue.

Key priorities

In 2017 UNHCR will focus on:
•    building the capacity of and providing technical support to the Government to address statelessness in Rakhine and elsewhere in the country;
•    monitoring the protection environment to support evidence-based advocacy interventions to address the main protection risks faced by UNHCR’s persons of concerns throughout Myanmar;
•    supporting the Government in identifying and implementing durable solutions in Rakhine State, Kachin State and northern Shan State and in facilitating reintegration of refugee returnees in south-east Myanmar;
•    responding to humanitarian needs in IDP camps through the provision of shelter, non-food item and camp management and coordination services as well as through protection interventions; and
•    leadership of the protection sector and the combined leadership of Shelter/NFI and Camp Coordination and Camp Management clusters.
