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.
This study is the result of a joint initiative between UNHCR Regional Service Centre/Division of International Protection and UNICEF Regional Office for Eastern and Southern Africa. This document was jointly commissioned by the UNHCR Regional Service Centre and the Division of International Protection and the UNICEF Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office. The study explores the nexus between humanitarian and development approaches to child protection and explores practical ways this divide can be bridged.
This guidance document was developed by UNICEF Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) and UNHCR Regional Service Center in Nairobi and the Division of International Protection. This joint UNHCR-UNICEF initiative contributes to bridging the divide between humanitarian response and development work, by providing concrete suggestions on actions that country teams can take to support better integration of refugees in national child protection systems and services, as well as harmonization between child protection procedures in humanitarian response and national child protection procedures.
Building on the inclusion of a module on the consensual approach to measuring child poverty and deprivation in the Uganda National Household Survey (UNHS, 2016/17) by the ever-innovative Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBoS), this study represents the first attempt to compare child poverty and deprivation in host and refugee communities in the country. The research and drafting of this report was led by Sheila Depio, Gemma Ahaibwe and Ibrahim Kasirye at the Economic Policy Research Centre (EPRC), in close collaboration with Shailen Nandy and Marco Pomati at the University of Cardiff, and Nathalie Meyer and Diego Angemi at UNICEF Uganda.
