Duties and Qualifications
There are over 119,000 asylum-seekers and refugees currently hosted in Greece who arrived and remained since the 2015 Â' 2016 humanitarian emergency.
In 2020, until mid-December, 15,400 people had arrived either by sea or by land, mostly from Afghanistan and Syria. UNHCR supports the Government who coordinates the refugee and migrant response in the development of policy, capacity building and targeted interventions in the areas of reception, asylum procedures, and for finding durable solutions.
UNHCR has multiple interventions in core areas of Child Protection, GBV, and other areas addressing specific needs of persons of concern.
The Office also retains a readiness to respond to emergencies and new arrivals, with particular focus on immediate support to the most vulnerable.
In 2021, UNHCR is working with the Ministry of Migration and Asylum to finalize transition of the large scale ESTIA accommodation programme by Q1 and will thereafter provide training and capacity support to Government ESTIA partners on protection, reception and asylum standards.
The large-scale ESTIA cash assistance programme is to be transitioned to the Greek authorities by end-June 2021. UNHCR also supports the Government's prevention and response to COVID-19 through CWC, technical interventions, increased coordination and protecting asylum-seekers at high-risk of COVID-19 complications.
While the situation on mainland Greece is better overall, most of the roughly 19,500 asylum-seekers at the reception and identification centres on the Greek Aegean Islands must cope with difficult living conditions and are exposed to various security risks.
UNHCR has long warned of the urgent need to address the situation and conditions for asylum-seekers on the Aegean Islands.
Continued support is also needed from European countries and European Union institutions in providing immediate protection to those most at-risk through sufficient resources, ensuring capacity in the country and responsibility-sharing through expedited relocations of unaccompanied children and other vulnerable people.
UNHCR, along with other actors, fully supports the ongoing relocation process, led by the Greek government and supported by the European Commission, of unaccompanied children, asylum-seeking families with children with severe medical conditions and beneficiaries of international protection.
As of mid-December 2020, almost 2,000 people had been relocated from Greece to ten European countries. UNHCR will continue to assist Greek authorities in responding to both short-term and long-term challenges.
