National Activity Plan 2006: Panama

National Activity Plan 2006: Panama

20 June 2006

UNHCR staff register refugees at the Douma registration center on the outskirts of Damascus. Registering with UNHCR ensures that the most vulnerable refugees receive aid.

  • In order to achieve legal and socio-economic integration for the long standing urban caseload in Panama, journalists will visit urban refugee families.
  • Outstanding issues for regularization of persons under the Temporary Humanitarian Protection (THP) at the border will be raised at meetings and forums.
  • Local sporting events will be held in border communities. These activities will bring refugee and local populations together.
  • In coordination with local schools, arts competitions will be organized.
  • To illustrate to the general public how refugees in Panama make a positive contribute to society, a photo exhibition will be held to give visibility to World Refugee Day.
  • To change negative perceptions about refugees and asylum seekers, refugee youth and students will participate in a radio programme.
