The UNHCR is expected to allocate USD 104.2 mn to its refugee programs in Egypt in 2019, up from last year’s allocation of USD 74.5 mn, according to the UNHCR’s Global Appeal 2019 Update. The agency will allocate around 10% of its total regional budget to North Africa, with specific focus on Egypt and Libya, which are working to control illegal migration via the Mediterranean Sea. Egypt currently hosts around 131k Syrian refugees and 6,920 Iraqi refugees, according to the report.
