Resettlement, June 2015
a) Global collaboration
UNHCR and relevant actors (such as Resettlement Countries and occasionally NGOS) have come together to form a “Core Group” or “Contact Group” to address needs of particular refugee situations. Each Core/Contact Group looks at resettlement as part of a larger protection and solutions strategy for that refugee situation. One such Core Group is the Great Lakes Core Group.
b) Local collaboration
The resettlement theme group was formed by UNHCR and NGOs in Nairobi engaged in resettlement activities. The group meets on a regular basis to: discuss developments and trends in resettlement in Kenya, coordinate and implement activities and training for relevant partners, share information, and identify best practices and develop guidelines for resettlement related topics.
