How We Work

ReDSS core elements to inform solutions planning and programming

Leaving no one behind: a commitment to address forced displacement

  1. Creating durable solutions requires a multi-stakeholder and sectoral, rights and needs-based programming approach
  2. The process must be viewed as a collective action rather than mandate driven based on an inclusive, participatory and consensus-building approach
  3. National, regional and local authorities have the primary responsibility and need to be supported to play their leadership and coordinating role
  4. Developing area-based solutions approaches is paramount to ensure integrated and comprehensive programing for host and displaced populations
  5. Community engagement is critical to inform (re)integration analysis and programing to make solutions lasting, locally relevant and supportive of social cohesion and to adopt a displacement affected communities approach- inclusive of refugees, returnees, IDPs and host communities
  6. Gender/age/diversity: Interventions should take into account the gender, age and diversity at play and give special attention to women and youth
  7. Displacement is a development issue with humanitarian components, so it is essential to ensure complementarities and synergies between humanitarian, development, peace and state-building programing to inform collective outcomes
