The future of up to 750,000 people in West Africa who are stateless is coming under the spotlight at a meeting organised by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in Côte d’Ivoire.
It’s part of the agency’s bid to end statelessness across the world within 10 years.
A stateless person is somebody who has does not have an official nationality.
It means that they are unable to access the rights and services that countries normally offer their citizens.
UNHCR refugee agency officer Karin de Gruijl explains the aim of the meeting to Daniel Johnson.
