Protracted political crisis in Cote d’Ivoire since 2010 resulted in a humanitarian crisis that led to the influx of thousands of asylum seekers into Ghana. Three years after the crisis began, 9,000 Ivorian refugees still reside in Ghana, 8,500 of them inhabiting three refugee camps in the Brong-Ahafo, Central and Western regions. An October 2013 joint assessment mission (JAM) by United Nations agencies, Government and donor partners indicated that almost all refugees were unwilling to return to Cote d’Ivoire in the near future due to the political situation and continuing security concerns.
