BRIEF BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECTThe United Nations High Commissioner forRefugees (UNHCR) is a non-for-profit,humanitarian organization, and agency of theUnited Nations. The mandate of the HighCommissioner was established by the resolution319 A (IV) of 3 December 1949, and providedwith its Statute in resolution 428 (V) of 14December 1950. The Statute stipulates that theHigh Commissioner "acting under the authority ofthe General Assembly, shall assume the functionof providing international protection to refugees,stateless people and other people of concern, andof seeking permanent solutions to theirproblems." In Cameroon, UNHCR established itspresence since 1982 and has provided its servicesto Refugees, Asylum seekers, Returnees,Internally Displaced Persons and to People facingthe Risk of Statelessness. As of September 2018,Cameroon is home to some 696,097 People ofConcern to UNHCR, including 263,206 CentralAfrican, and 100,504 Nigerian refugees. UNHCRcurrently runs 10 offices within the country,including a Representation in Yaoundé, 3 SubOffices (Bertoua, Meiganga, Maroua), 5 FieldOffices (Batouri, Djohong, Touboro, Douala andBuea) and 1 Field Unit (Kousseri). The current security situation in the North Westand South West regions (NwSw) is unfavorable. Itis marked by a spiral of violence characterized byattacks, exactions, killings, abductions andmultiple incidents of human rights violations.These attacks and counter-attacks have resultedin deaths, violence, forced displacements ofpopulations. The number of displaced populations in the NwSwregions has been rising exponentially in a fewmonths since November 2017 due to theunabated spiral of violence. In February 2018,based on estimates communicated by the CatholicChurch, there were a total of 25,775 IDPs (some5,155 Households) in the Meme and Manyudivisions of the South West region. At the end ofMarch 2018, as violence spread to more villages,including in Mamfe and Monge/Kumbasubdivisions of the South West region, an UN-OCHA inter-agency assessment mission reportedthat the number of displaced people had reached40,000. By April 2018, the North West and SouthWest regions had been so seriously affected bythe crisis that the number of displaced personshad reached as many as 160,000 people (of which150,000 in the South West and 10,000 in NorthWest regions). To date, estimates by HumanitarianOrganizations indicate that the instability hasuprooted a no less than 437,515 people(including 350,919 in the North West and SouthWest regions, the rest settling in neighboringtowns, forests and villages). A larger number ofthe displaced people have settled in deep forestswhile others are found in villages and townsspread across the abovementioned areas. Inaccordance with its responsibilities with regard tointernal displacements, UNHCR, is the Global Leadof the NFIs/Shelter, Protection and CCCM Clusters.It is in light of the aforementioned that, alongwith other actors, UNHCR established a presencein Buea (and soon in Bamenda) where it hasdeployed an Emergency Response Program witha NFIs/Shelter and Protection componentsfocusing on the provision of Protection andassistance in terms of Core relief items andShelter to IDPs and Host Communities.
