ReDSS Solutions Framework
ReDSS, through consultations with stakeholders, adapted the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Framework for Durable Solutions for Internally Displaced Persons to develop a framework for displacement affected communities. The framework offers a snapshot in time to assess to what extent durable solutions for displaced populations have been achieved in a particular context. It comprises 30 indicators organised around physical, material and legal safety. A traffic light system has been developed to assess the status of each indicator. The traffic light provides a comparative assessment of conditions between the displaced and the host community.
This framework can be used as an analytical and programmatic tool that presents indicators in a logical manner and as a joint monitoring and evaluation tool to support coordination and to identify gaps. It provides common overall outcomes and then detailed activities have to be developed and adapted based on local/ regional context and needs.
It is currently being piloted in different operational/policy contexts in the region, in order to test the indicators and to collect and record lessons learnt to improve it. Go to ReDSS Solutions analysis page for ReDSS solutions analysis publications. Click on the below links to download:
