Since the 1990s, UNHCR has become increasingly committed to protecting the environment and increasingly aware of the environmental challenges associated with hosting a large population in a small area. In the ensuing decades, UNHCR has set in place programmes and initiatives aimed at improving sustainable environmental management in order to reduce environmental degradation and enhance the resources available to refugees and internally displaced people as well as host communities.
