2008 Annual Report of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees

The latest annual report of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to the 63rd session of the General Assembly is now available.

The report covers the work of the agency for the period from 1 January 2007 to 30 June 2008:

"This report provides an account of the work carried out by UNHCR between January 2007 and mid-2008, in response to the needs of 31.7 million people of concern. It describes major developments with respect to protection, assistance and finding durable solutions for refugees, IDPs [internally displaced persons], stateless persons and others of concern. The report reviews partnerships and coordination of action with other concerned entities both within and outside of the United Nations system, as well as ongoing contributions towards the debate on irregular, mixed population movements. The report also looks at renewed efforts to tackle the challenge of refugees in protracted situations."
