This article reviews how UNHCR Ethiopia in cooperation with the Ethiopian Government, development actors, donor agencies and the private sector has been working on to improve the socio-cultural and economic needs of refugees.
Ethiopia made various promises for the interest of refugees at a Leader’s Summit on refugees which included the boost of admission of refugee’s children in pre-school, primary, secondary and tertiary education. They also pledged to enlarge and improve basic social services for refugees. For the purpose of refugees growing their own crops, hectares of irrigable land were to be provided and also for refugees who have lived in Ethiopia for long enough, local integration was to be allowed. Such benefits for refugees can help them integrate better in the host country.
