To allow developers to create useful tools, we have opened up our data portal. Information can be accessed either through our open API or downloaded as csv files. For information about population statistics since 1951, go to our population stats site. For protection reasons, some data has been redacted.
To help children of all ages learn about refugee issues, we have produced a range of teaching materials and selected online resources for teachers. To find out more and to sign up, visit our Teaching about Refugees pages.
Help rebuild lives
There are many practical ways businesses can help, ranging from helping refugees create cooperatives and strengthen business skills, to employing skilled and trained people. To find out if your company could help, please visit our Livelihoods section.
Organize an event
Would you like to support UNHCR's special events or help spread the word about people who have been forced to flee? There are many ways that you can contribute and participate. Here are some ideas:
- Host a World Refugee Day party – screen a topical film about the forcibly displaced or celebrate multiculturalism.
- Organize a discussion at your home, place of worship, or community centre on refugee issues. Contact your nearest UNHCR office and ask for ideas, and maybe even a speaker.
- Hold a debate on a topic important to you – for example, who is a refugee? What rights do refugees have? What is shelter? What can individuals and communities do to help?
