Refugees and displaced persons

The year 1990 marked an unprecedented deterioration in the global refugee situation-with a staggering 15 million world wide-due in large part to developments in the Horn of Africa and western Africa. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) continued its humanitarian activities on behalf of refugees and internally displaced persons throughout the world, despite the financial constraints under which it was operating. In addition to responding to increased requests for emergency assistance to new refugees, UNHCR, in co-operation with concerned Governments and intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, continued to seek durable solutions to refugee problems through programmes of voluntary repatriation, local integration in the country of asylum or resettlement in another country.
