CRRF - UNHCR

68.5M Forcibly displaced people worldwide
193 States adopted the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants
15 CRRF roll-out countries
2 Regional CRRF approaches

The New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants
is a milestone for global solidarity and refugee protection at a time of unprecedented displacement and calls upon UNHCR to develop and initiate the application of the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF) in particular situations, in close coordination with relevant States, other UN agencies, refugees, NGOS and other stakeholders.

The CRRF specifies key elements for a comprehensive response to any large movement of refugees. These include rapid and well-supported reception and admissions; support for immediate and on-going needs; assistance for local and national institutions and communities receiving refugees; and expanded opportunities for solutions. The CRRF has informed the preparation of the proposed global compact on refugees, which has been included in the High Commissioner’s annual report to the General Assembly in 2018.

Core CRRF objectives

  1. Ease pressure on the host countries involved
  2. Enhance refugee self-reliance
  3. Expand access to third-country solutions
  4. Support conditions in countries of origin for return in safety and dignity
