Cities and municipalities are some of UNHCR’s most important partners, as majority of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) now dwell in cities not in camps. Finding themselves on the frontlines of the global refugee response, an increasing number of cities are choosing to empower refugees and embrace the opportunities they bring. Mayors and cities also play an incredibly important role in strengthening inclusion and combating misinformation, racism, and xenophobia.
With COVID-19 Cities around the world are stepping up to address the economic, health and social impact of COVID-19 and to protect their most vulnerable residents, including refugees.
