As UNHCR statistics generally rely on data from host countries, statistics on refugees alone can give an insufficient account of refugee numbers, as some host countries will not grant refugee status to certain groups. Including statistics for individuals in refugee-like situations is an attempt to account for unrecognised refugees and does not include internally displaced persons. Statistics for stateless refugees are included if available.

NRC provides information, counselling and legal assistance to assist returnees to resolve land disputes and secure their tenure in land. The project’s activities are organised into three pillars: land dispute resolution; building the capacity of individuals, communities and institutions involved in resolving land disputes; and advocating for systemic solutions to insecure land tenure in Liberia. Each of these activities is oriented towards creating conditions which enable safe and durable solutions to displacement. NRC provides legal assistance, usually through individual casework, but it may also entail class action. NRC pursues legal action through all relevant local, national and international legal systems and mechanisms, including customary law, conflict resolution and mediation mechanisms and any other prevalent systems of law - in addition to statutory law and the courts. NRC may provide training in legal issues to target groups and key local actors - to establish a platform of understanding of rights and applicable law, and subsequent legal approaches to key issues.
