On “Resettlement Plus”

UNHCR just published their supplemental appeal, Strengthening refugee resettlement and other pathways to admission and solutions: Global Strategy 2016.

From page 4, UNCHR Strategy,

UNHCR’s response to this unprecedented level of requests for referrals of refugees for resettlement and other forms of admission centers on:

  1. The immediate scale up of capacity for resettlement processing, including through the deployment of additional resettlement, registration and community-based protection staff; and
  2. Strengthening guidelines and overall operational capacity for the long-term provisions of increased referrals for resettlement and other pathways to admission and solutions, including facilitation of new programmes.
