Kenya comprehensive refugee programme 2014

Kenya has been providing protection and lifesaving assistance to refugees since the 1960s. During the 1990s refugee influxes were witnessed from Sudan, Somalia and Ethiopia. While returns took place as the situation improved in places of origin for Sudanese to South Sudan and Ethiopians to Ethiopia, a significant number of refugees remained and continue to be hosted in Kenya. As well, 2011 saw an influx of Somalis as a result of drought and insecurity in their homeland. The 2014 Kenya Comprehensive Refugee Programme, presents a consolidated view of refugee related programmes being implemented by humanitarian actors including UNHCR, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), United Nations Agencies and government entities.
