The Solutions Alliance Annual Report provides an overview of the progress made by the Alliance in addressing displacement challenges from 2014 to 2015. It emphasizes the need for a collaborative approach involving diverse stakeholders to find innovative and sustainable solutions to forced displacement. The report highlights the establishment of National and Thematic Groups, the development of a provisional statement of goals and objectives, and the Alliance’s commitment to advocating for core messages leading up to the Sustainable Development Goals. It also showcases successful initiatives in countries like Zambia and Somalia, where integration efforts and private sector engagement have contributed to the economic development and well-being of both displaced persons and host communities.


The Solutions Alliance Annual Report provides a comprehensive review of the progress made by the Alliance in addressing displacement issues from early 2014 to the end of 2015. The report highlights the increasing global displacement crisis, with approximately 20 million refugees or asylum-seekers and another 40 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) who have been displaced for over five years. It also emphasizes the need for comprehensive solutions and collaboration among various stakeholders, including governments, development and humanitarian agencies, NGOs, the private sector, and academia.

The report identifies two unique attributes of the Solutions Alliance: its multi-stakeholder character and its focus on grounding high-level policy discussions in actual solutions for real contexts. The Alliance has made significant progress through its National and Thematic Groups, which have been operational in Somalia and Zambia, and have focused on areas such as results framework development, local integration of former refugees, engaging the private sector, and rule of law support for durable solutions.

The report also highlights the creation of pilot initiatives resulting from the Business Consultation held by the Engaging the Private Sector Thematic Group. Additionally, the Research, Data, and Performance Management Thematic Group has worked on compiling resource documents and creating an online platform for information sharing.

Overall, the report underscores the need for innovative approaches and collaboration to address the complex challenges of displacement and achieve durable solutions.
