United Nations High Commission for Refugees

United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) Somalia coordinates all humanitarian actors' protection and shelter/non food items activities targeting internally displaced persons (IDP) in Somalia. In addition, it provides protection and assistance to refugees and asylum seekers originating mainly from Ethiopia.

Through its presence in seven field locations in the three regions of Somaliland, Puntland and South-Central, UNHCR also implements several projects to support the livelihoods of vulnerable groups amongst the IDP population. UNHCR is also involved in activities related to mixed migration, co-chairing with International Organization for Migration (IOM) the Somalia mixed migration task force.
