People in need and target beneficiaries

Category of people in need

Number of people in need (all school-age girls and boys will be taken into consideration)

Beneficiaries targeted in cluster’s CAP projects (end-year target)

Preschool children of 3-5 years old



6-11 years old in primary schools






Explanation of number of beneficiaries targeted

Following decisions on the planning of military interventions of the ECOWAS in the north of Mali, contingency planning takes into account the possible escalation of the conflict and an estimated 60,000 refugees may flee to Burkina Faso during the upcoming 3 months, including up to 23,400 refugee children and adolescents in need of psycho-social, education and training support.

The response mostly targets those children in preschool and primary school who will have to be provided with opportunities to learn. Support will also have to be provided to host communities as required.

How the sector response plan will contribute to the strategic objectives

The response plan will contribute to providing multi-sector support to current refugees and potential influx of refugees from Mali and/or potential displacements and support to host communities. More specifically, the education in emergencies thematic group will target the availability of safe educational and training opportunities for vulnerable girls, boys and youth and help increase systems resilience to such emergencies. By building upon achievements made in 2012, the response plan will serve as a continued means of support for vulnerable refugee and host communities and more specifically children and youth.

How the sector response plan will contribute to the strategic objectives

The 2012 food insecurity and malnutrition crises along with the influx of refugees from Mali and other disasters such as floods, affected thousands of households in the country. The magnitude and recurrence of some of these crises have dire consequences on populations’ coping mechanisms, reducing their ability to adapt and absorb recurrent shocks. Despite the positive prospects of harvests in 2013, thousands of households will remain extremely vulnerable and will require support to rebuild their livelihoods. The situation in Mali might also have serious implications on the vulnerability of communities while the risk for Burkina Faso to face other disasters, such us floods remains high.

In this multifaceted context, and after the establishment of its Humanitarian Advisory Team (HAT) in March 2012, OCHA continued to increase its capacity in Burkina Faso in order to better support the HC, the HCT and national authorities in their preparedness and response efforts.
For 2013, OCHA’s team in Burkina Faso will continue to maintain and strengthen coordination of humanitarian activities and to provide the full range of OCHA services to the humanitarian community. In addition, in order to increase its support to humanitarian partners in their response, OCHA envisages expanding its presence, notably in the north of the country (Dori area) where food insecurity and refugee settlements require enhanced coordination.

Sector objectives and output targets

Objective (OCHA): To strengthen coordination of humanitarian operations in response to the food security and nutrition crisis and to the refugee situation.

1. Strengthen humanitarian coordination

The strengthening of the humanitarian coordination will be achieved through the following activities:

Supporting the RC/HC in implementing strategic decisions made by the HCT; activating and assisting sector/sector working groups; facilitating inter-sector meetings; supporting the development and monitoring of the CAP; liaising with government counterparts on all humanitarian issues; carrying out joint field assessments in the most affected areas including internally displaced and refugee’s host populations; leading and supporting contingency planning efforts; liaising with a broad range of stakeholders (UN, INGOs, NNGOs, government, donors); and ensuring regular exchange between NGOs and OCHA through an established forum.

Output Indicators

Fully functional HCT with meetings at least every two months.

Sectors are fully functional and meet on a monthly basis at national and field levels.

Inter-sector coordination is reinforced and monthly meetings are organised.

CAP developed and updated as required and at midyear.

Contingency plan updated at mid-year when evolution of situation requires it.

2. Support response preparedness activities

Support preparedness measures related to the food/nutrition crisis, the Malian conflict and other potential risks; support national authorities and stakeholders’ in strengthening Early Warning systems, and their preparedness and emergency response capacities.

Output Indicators

Refugee population







The challenges and strategies to UNHCR’s operations in Burkina Faso

Following the crisis in Mali, which started in January 2012, UNHCR deployed an emergency team to assist the Government of Burkina Faso to respond to the refugee influx and to identify the needs of the incoming refugees. In response, as of February 2012, UNHCR’s presence in Burkina Faso rapidly increased its presence in order to address the protection and assistance needs of the rapidly growing refugee population.

Today, due to the on-going crisis in Mali, refugees continue to seek asylum and international protection in Burkina Faso while more refugees continue to enter the country, at a rate of 1,000 per month.

Several challenges to the organisation of the camps remain: staff capacity shortages have encumbered the refugee registration process, leading to a downward revision of the beneficiary population with the level 2 registration (between July and September 2012) by more than 50%. Difficulties of access to spontaneous refugee sites as well as multiple registrations due to the clan-like and semi-nomadic nature of the refugee population may have biased the figures during the level 1 registration. Following the Level II registration, these problems have been partially remedied through the institution of a continuous registration process. This will allow for a continuous update of accurate statistics on the refugee population.

As a result, the operation can now improve its existing focus on the five lifesaving priorities established since the start of the crisis (Protection, WASH, Health, Food and Shelter), by tailoring its responses to the specific needs of refugee women, men, boys, girls and elderly people.

To improve the protection provided to its refugees, UNHCR is currently focussing on re-locating the refugees in the Sahel region, towards camps further away from the Malian border.

In terms of WASH, the focus will be on reaching post-emergency standards. A significant gap exists as the region is semi-arid and of difficult access to water. In health, malaria and cholera remain a huge challenge in the camps. The provision of food rations must be ensured and the lack of certain food items must be avoided. In shelter, UNHCR is offering traditional shelters to the refugees who remained unaccustomed to the UNHCR tents and plastic sheeting provided. The specific strategies for each sector are presented below.
