Document type: CRRF learning materials/guides
Document language: English

Following a series of regional and global stocktaking on UNHCR’s experience with applying the CRRF, UNHCR seeks to increase the knowledge and understanding on including persons of concern into national and UN development planning frameworks. Inclusion into these framework is part of UNHCR’s approach for sustainable responses to large movements of refugees. A regional workshop in the Americas sought to increase understanding of inclusion of persons of concern into national and UN development planning frameworks; understand the implications of the 2030 Agenda and the new generation of UNDAFs and solicit experience and good practice from operations for developing lessons and guidance. The workshop benefited from resource persons from UNDP, UNDOCO, UNDG-LAC, UNRC Office and the Government of Ecuador. This summary note includes a compilation of emerging issues and lessons learned regarding national development planning processes (NDPs) and UNHCR’s programming and coherence with NDPs and UNDAFs.
