Overall, UNHCR advocacy with humanitarian and development actors, but also with donors and line Ministries aims at contributing to solutions to the plight of displaced populations and their Nigerian hosts.

UNHCR encourages the inclusion of refugee and internally displaced populations into national and other development programmes to ensure nobody is left behind.

In addition, UNHCR advocates for more support to Nigeria for the implementation of the Global Compact on Refugees through a whole-of-society approach.

Nigeria has made considerable progress towards the inclusion of refugees in the local society and economy as shown in this joint publication of UNHCR and NCFRMI, the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons.
