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

El presente documento tiene como finalidad ofrecer una visión general de los principales acontecimientos que afectan a la situación de desplazamiento en las Américas y a algunas de las actividades de respuesta del ACNUR con arreglo a los objetivos estratégicos de 2019 para la región.   PRINCIPALES ACONTECIMIENTOS El 22 de marzo se formó en Tapachula, México, un nuevo grupo numeroso de personas que viajaban al Norte, con un tamaño estimado de 800 a 1.200 personas. Conocido como la "Caravana de Centroamérica y el Caribe", el grupo está compuesto por personas de El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua y Cuba. Son principalmente hogares encabezados por mujeres y hombres solteros, y aproximadamente el 30% son niños. En 2019, las solicitudes de asilo en México aumentaron un 185% en comparación con 2018, según cifras oficiales. México organizó su primera reunión como Presidente Pro-Tempore del Marco Integral Regional para la Protección y Soluciones (MIRPS) para establecer formalmente el plan de trabajo de prioridades para 2019. A fines de marzo, la Comisión Interinstitucional para la Protección de los Desplazados Internos en Honduras entregó oficialmente el proyecto de ley sobre desplazamientos internos al Congreso. Este es un paso clave en la entrega de mecanismos de protección y prevención para al menos 245.000 personas desplazadas internas en el país. Se espera que la entrada en vigor de la ley facilite la acción coordinada de las instituciones estatales para mitigar la probabilidad y el impacto del desplazamiento forzado.

NCA Protection Concerns Dashboard - March 2019

Multiple forms of violence, the strong presence of armed criminal groups, weak institutions, and widespread social and economic exclusion produce devastating effects on the access to rights. Despite the efforts to reduce violence levels made by NCA states, many relevant indicators continue to show chronic levels. Thousands of people from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador keep fleeing violence and insecurity in their countries. In addition, new forms of displacement in large groups have occurred since the last quarter of 2018, creating new challenges in countries of transit and destination. Such a complex context calls for a coordinated and ongoing response among humanitarian and development actors, and a broad regional coordination scheme, as well as a close effort to monitor the situation of vulnerable populations in order to ensure an appropriate protection response.
