Do business with refugees, Garissa residents advised


Garissa residents and leaders have been urged to foster dialogue to improve business in refugee camps.

Neil Turner, the county director of the Norwegian Refugee Council, said building resilience and sustainable livelihoods for both refugees and the host community will greatly foster co-existence.

He was addressing participants at the NRC offices in Dadaab on Friday during a key stakeholders forum to discuss the business environment in Dadaab.

The current Dadaab refugee population is estimated to at 208,000, constituting approximately 33 per cent of the population of Garissa county.
