Assistance to Refugees and Persons Affected by the Conflict in Colombia

Approximately 50 Colombian asylum-seekers enter Ecuador each day, a 48 percent increase over the past five years. Most are poor, socially fractured, and have limited access to education and national safety nets. The northern border between Ecuador and Colombia is characterized by high levels of insecurity and lack of social and institutional development, with intense competition for resources and social services, which creates tensions between refugees and Ecuadorians.
