UNHCR’s protection response relies on providing assistance to displaced and host communities alongside local authorities and humanitarian organisations while simultaneously strengthening and empowering communities’ structures as part of the solution. for their challenges UNHCR conducts regular protection monitoring exercises to assess the main needs of displaced families and those hosting them in order to plan adequate interventions.
In September, UNHCR and partner Caritas surveyed around 900 families, out of which over 160 reported protection incidents.
Additional funding is urgently required to scale-up protection activities to address the urgent needs of displaced and host communities in the short, medium, and longterm, particularly groups and persons with heightened vulnerabilities.
