About Us

 Our goal is to improve programming and policy to support durable solutions for displacement-affected communities.

The search for durable solutions to the protracted displacement situation in East Africa and the Horn of Africa is a critical humanitarian and development concern. Displacement is a regional/cross-border issue with a strong political dimension, demanding a multi-sector response beyond the existing humanitarian agenda.

Background & History

The Regional Durable Solutions Secretariat (ReDSS) was created in 2015 to maintain focused momentum and stakeholder engagement towards durable solutions for displacement-affected communities in East Africa and the Horn of Africa.

ReDSS seeks to improve joint learning and programming, inform policy processes, enhance capacity development, and facilitate coordination in the collective search for durable solutions. It is a coordination and information hub that acts as a catalyst and agent provocateur to stimulate forward-thinking and policy development on durable solutions for displacement.
