Reducing statelessness means finding a solution for those without a nationality. There is one solution for statelessness: acquisition of nationality - usually of the country with which stateless persons have the strongest ties.
UNHCR works with governments to help them to make changes to legislation and procedures, which are necessary to recognize stateless people as nationals. Additionally, UNHCR liaises with NGOs, civil society organizations, UN partners and the media to publicize these changes so stateless people know how to become nationals. UNHCR also helps its partners to better advise stateless people on how to access nationality through providing legal advice and representation.
