GENEVA, May 18 (Xinhua) -- The UN refugee agency UNHCR on Wednesday launched a new global campaign to raise more fund mainly from the private sector so as to provide shelter for some 2 million most-needed refugees.


Called "Nobody Left Outside," UNHCR said its efforts to do so were facing a half-billion-dollar deficit, saying that the huge shortfall in funds for sheltering refugees is severely undermining efforts to tackle the biggest global displacement crisis since World War II.


"Some 60 million people are today forcibly displaced, almost 20 million of them refugees who have been forced to flee across international borders, and the rest people displaced within their own countries. Humanitarian funding is failing to keep pace," the UN agency said in a statement Wednesday.


"Shelter is the foundation stone for refugees to survive and recover, and should be considered a non-negotiable human right," said Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.


The Nobody Left Outside campaign aims to raise funds from the private sector to build or improve shelter for 2 million refugees by 2018.


UNHCR said it purchases 70,000 tents and more than 2 million tarpaulins every year, but as the agency continues to face high levels of shelter needs and with limited funding available, operations often face the difficult decision to prioritize emergency shelter for the maximum number of people of concern, over an investment in more durable and sustainable solutions.


Outside of camps, refugees rely on UNHCR support to find housing and pay rent in towns and cities across dozens of countries bordering conflict zones, and these operations are expected to cost 724 million U.S. dollars in 2016, yet only 158 million U.S. dollars is currently available.


According to UNHCR, the private sector is an increasingly important donor source for it, contributing more than 8 per cent of the organization's overall funding in 2015.




LISBON, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- Social dialogue and collective negotiation are essential to guarantee labor rights, Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said on Wednesday.


Addressing a conference to mark 100 years since the creation of the first ministry for work in Portugal, Costa said the Portuguese government was committed to supporting decent work as supported by the International Labour Organization.


"The idea presented so many times that Portugal continued to have a labor market that was too rigid and that the rise of productivity had to necessarily involve labor flexibility are facts we were able to deny on the basis of international comparative studies carried out by these organizations," he said.


"Austerity measures and insisting on a competitive model based on labor deregulation and low salaries had a negative impact on work and on the economy," Costa added.


He pointed out that the unemployment level hit 17.5 percent in 2013, taking away over 200,000 jobs. This led the government to abandon "the project of poverty" which the country was subject to, and to focus on a strategy "to dignify work," he said.


Costa said the government had held meetings with experts, institutions and social partners to establish priorities to establish mechanisms to modernize and transition to the new paradigms of the digital revolution.


The Socialist government, led by Antonio Costa and backed by the Left Bloc and Communist Party, has a budget for 2017 which centers on recovery of personal income while raising indirect taxes.


Costa has insisted his anti-austerity approach is boosting the economy. However, economic forecasts were recently revised in the country's state budget for 2017, expecting a larger deficit and lower growth compared to its forecast in April.


The government is expecting a deficit of 1.6 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) and growth to be 1.5 percent next year. Portugal is aiming to cut its unemployment rate to 10.4 percent next year from 11.2 percent in 2016.
