UNHCR Nigeria: Returnee

Over the years, UNHCR has managed numerous voluntary repatriation programmes that have brought millions of displaced people home. In Afghanistan alone, we have helped some five million refugees return since 2002. 

We also assist with small-scale and individual repatriations, and, where necessary, monitor the reintegration of returnees to ensure that their repatriation was a sustainable solution. 

In Nigeria UNHCR has facilitated the tripertite agreement between Nigeria and Cameroon for the voluntary repatriation of Nigerian refugees leaving in Cameroon.
