At the end of 2020, Liberia hosted 18,890 refugees. Most of them come from the Ivory Coast, Mali, DRC, South Sudan, Syria, Pakistan and Lebanon.

UNHCR Liberia continued to seek durable solutions, focusing on voluntary repatriation of Ivorian refugees as a major strategic priority. In parallel, the operation continues with efforts towards local integration of Ivorian refugees who opted to integrate locally and a few others who may not be able to return for protection (or other) reasons.
