Excerpt:
“Currently there are 69,203 refugees in seven camps: Beldangi I, Beldangi II, Beldangi II extension, Khudunarabari, Timai and Goldhap (all in Jhapa District); and Sanischare (Morang District).
Of the camps’ current population, about 75 percent have expressed an interest in third-country resettlement.
UNHCR is currently in negotiations with the government on the planning process in an effort to ensure that the same level of services and assistance are maintained for the refugees when the camps are reduced to two.”
