UNHCR works together with partners and other UN agencies to provide critical emergency assistance to those forcibly displaced, such as clean water, sanitation and medical care, as well as shelter, household items and food. In addition, UNHCR develops community protection programs to generate leadership, promote violence prevention in communities at risk, and identify people with protection needs. UNHCR also promotes local integration in host communities and countries, through employment, entrepreneurship, and education programs.
