Country Overview
Zambia hosts over 80,000 refugees, asylum-seekers and others of concern. The majority of people of concern are refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo and wider Great Lakes region as well as Angolan and Rwandan former refugees. The people of concern reside in Mantapala, Meheba and Mayukwayukwa refugee settlements as well as in Lusaka and other urban centres. UNHCR has four offices in Zambia including a Representation Office in Lusaka, Field Offices in Solwezi and Kawambwa, and a Field Unit in Kaoma.
Within the context of the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF), under the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR) employing the whole-of-society approach, UNHCR provides comprehensive and solutions-oriented support, including livelihoods and self-reliance activities, to people of concern while advocating for the inclusion of refugees and other people of concern in the national system. In the context of COVID-19 pandemic, UNHCR has adapted work modalities to continue delivering protection and assistance to people of concern in Zambia in close coordination with the Government of Zambia and other stakeholders.

    • Zambia - DRC Situation

      The on-going conflicts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have caused and continue to cause internal and external displacement of populations. In 2017, some 100,000 Congolese fled to neighbouring countries as refugees, due to widespread militia activities, unrest and violence, joining the 585,000 already in exile. The security conditions in DRC, especially in the eastern and central parts have continued to worsen since the beginning of 2018. Because of this, the Congolese refugee population is now among the ten largest in the world. Nearly 55 per cent are children, many crossing borders unaccompanied or separated. Existing camps and sites in many asylum countries are saturated, and available basic services are stretched to the limit. The situation requires support, adequate resources and collaboration so that effective protection and assistance can be delivered efficiently to Congolese refugees.
