Sweden is the European country receiving the highest number of resettled refugees annually, with an annual resettlement quota of 1,900 persons. Resettled refugees who come to Sweden often have little knowledge of their new home, which puts great demands on the municipalities receiving the them.
Through Project Landa, the County Administrative Board of Gävleborg had the opportunity to develop pre-arrival information and reception for resettled refugees. Running for two years and financed by the European Refugee Fund, the project ensured that those involved in receiving resettled refugees in Swedish municipalities were involved in all phases of the resettlement process for refugees resettled to Sweden. The following film will explain more about the Landa Project and how reception and integration of resettled refugees in Gävleborg is organised.
