Operational Context:

There are some 50,000 refugees and migrants currently hosted in Greece. In 2017, A TOTAL 29,720 people arrived by sea, and some 5,500 by the GREECE-TURKEY land border, the majority from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. UNHCR supports the Government, WHICH coordinates the refugee and migrant response, in the development of policy, with capacity building and targeted interventions in the areas of reception, asylum procedures, and for solutions. The situation has greatly improved in the mainland since 2015. There, people are hosted in 27 Government-run sites (camp-like and buildings), as well as in rented housing provided by UNHCR through municipalities and NGOs for some 22,000 asylum-seekers and refugees. Additionally, UNHCR delivers a cash assistance programme, which benefited 37,600 people in December 2017. The situation is more challenging on the islands where there is not enough capacity to accommodate the 13,000 people who have arrived recently, or are awaiting the completion of their asylum procedures. UNHCR is in response supporting the Government transfer those authorized to move to the mainland to continue their applications, along other types of support.
