UNFPA Guinea-Bissau

Although a post conflict country with a political instability (3 different Goverments in one year), Guinea-Bissau is quite calm, with no humanitarian crisis. UNHCR reports a number of 10000 refugees from neighbor countries, but their presence does not cause any humanitarian need as such. In the 2017 CO Contingency prepardness and response, we based our planification on those 10000 refugees and 5000 Bissau-Guineans from host communities.
