Qatar’s strong and longstanding partnership with UNHCR provides essential support to our operations worldwide, including global education programming, and helps us provide vital assistance to the most vulnerable.

Through sustained financial contributions and engagement, Qatar provides support, both for emergency programming and in ensuring UNHCR can provide essential services and meet the needs of displaced people.

Qatar’s multi-year and unearmarked contributions since 2019 have provided UNHCR with a predictable and flexible source of funding. This helps UNHCR to support those in greatest need and to kick-start emergency responses.

UNHCR has a well-established strategic relationship with the State of Qatar, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Qatar Fund for Development, as well as Qatari organizations who have been providing vital support to our programmes globally, making Qatar a top donor to UNHCR.
