Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

Liberia continues to offer safe and secure asylum to refugees, despite the vulnerability of the country and its limited resources. The impact of the withdrawal of UNMIL in March 2018 is still felt on the key infrastructure, especially the road network and the health system. The fragile situation created by the current economic situation and the number of people living below the poverty line is threatening the stability of the political and security system in the country.

In its effort to secure durable solutions for Ivorian refugees, including voluntary repatriation of those willing to return and local integration of those unwilling or unable to return, UNHCR continues to assist the governments in the repair of some roads which are used for voluntary repatriation. Upcoming elections in Côte d’Ivoire and in Guinea in 2020 require preparedness work in Liberia with the involvement of various stakeholders. 

The Government of Liberia brought together partners to develop a five-year national strategy (2019-2023) for the local integration of Ivorian refugees. The Government of Liberia provided 315 acres of land provided in Bahn (Nimba) for the local integration of Ivorian refugees.
The Government of Liberia has made a number of pledges to fight against statelessness and is also in the process of mainstreaming Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework and the Global Compact on Refugees.

Key priorities

In 2020, UNHCR will focus on:
  • supporting the Government in fulfilling the pledges made towards Statelessness and the Global Refugee Forum;
  • working with the government in finalization of amendment to the refugee law, 1973 Alien and Nationality Laws, domestication of the two statelessness conventions and the Kampala Convention;
  • supporting the Government to achieve the annual milestones agreed under the five-years Local Integration Strategy (2019-2023);
  • continuing to advocate for the absorption of all teachers into the Government payroll and include the schools into the Education Joint Sectoral Review;
  • continuing to advocate the absorption of health staff on the government’s payroll.
  • working with the Government on increasing school enrolment to attain SDGs and the targets of United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework, 2020-2024, and the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development for Liberia;
  • reducing vulnerability and inequality, while empowering women and girls through livelihood activities;
  • building the capacity of the government in taking over the RSD process by 2021.
