The UN Refugee Agency has identified more than 1.44 million refugees in need of resettlement in 2020. However, current national pledges will serve fewer than 1% of these refugees.
Community sponsorship programmes offer an additional opportunity for those in need of protection. They allow citizen groups to directly engage in refugee resettlement efforts and enable cities to work in close partnership with communities in resettling refugees. Cities can provide support to the community and sponsored refugees from arrival to settlement and integration. For cities, it is vital to include refugees in society.
