Global Retreat on UNHCR’s Engagement with the World Bank Group and Development Partners

mandate in UN 12.02.2019. - 14.02.2019.

UNHCR organizes an annual workshop for its development partnerships officers, which this year will take place on 13 and 14 February. ISSAT is requested to support through delivery of a key note speech at the session dedicated to ‘Leveraging development partners for engagement with National Governments’. The engaging Government session aims at promoting new thinking for UNHCR staff on how to engage refugee protection agencies (often security institutions) and work with them towards more comprehensive refugee responses in which other institutions (ministries of education, health etc.) increase their role in refugee protection matters. This requires significant cultural change on both the side of UNHCR as well as the side of the national institutions. We would like DCAF-ISSAT to launch the session highlighting experience and lessons from security sector reform processes, notably from their experience of support to their Governing Board Members in Guinea-Bissau and Madagascar.

Le Niger a toujours été un pays de transit pour les flux migratoires mixtes allant des pays subsahariens à l’Afrique du Nord ou à l’Europe. Au cours des deux dernières années, la situation humanitaire s'est détériorée en raison de la détérioration de la sécurité dans les pays voisins (Nigéria, Mali, Burkina Faso) et de la présence croissante de groupes extrémistes armés dans les zones frontalières, entraînant des déplacements massifs de population et de nouveaux afflux de demandeurs d'asile. En outre, avec les récents mouvements migratoires liés à la crise libyenne et aux politiques des pays de l'UE en matière de migrants, le pays a commencé à être confronté à d'importants besoins de protection des migrants et des demandeurs d'asile.

En réponse à ce nouveau scénario, le UNHCR a mise en place l’ "Emergency transit Mechanism" (ETM) qui souhaite répondre aux personnes détenues illégalement en Libye et les transférer au Niger afin d'obtenir le statut de réfugié et de pouvoir rentrer dans le pré programme de réinstallation, et être donc accueilli dans un pays tiers.

Assessing Mental Health and Psychosocial Needs and Resources: toolkit for Humanitarian Settings

Mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) is a term used to describe a wide range of actions that address social, psychological and psychiatric problems that are either pre-existing or emergency-induced. These actions are carried out in highly different contexts by organizations and people with different professional backgrounds, in different sectors and with different types of resources. All these different actors – and their donors – need practical assessments leading to recommendations that can be used immediately to improve people’s mental health and well-being.

This document is written primarily for public health actors. As the social determinants of mental health and psychosocial problems occur across sectors, half of the tools in the accompanying toolkit cover MHPSS assessment issues relevant to other sectors as well as the health sector.

Sexual Violence Against Men and Boys in the Syria Crisis

As the civil war in Syria further deteriorates, accounts of systematic human rights abuses continue to emerge, including torture, starvation, and widespread sexual violence against civilians and combatants. More than five million refugees have fled to neighbouring countries in search of safety, yet they continue to face challenges of poverty, discrimination, as well as sexual violence and exploitation. Some attention has been given to women and girls who have suffered sexual violence in Syria and in displacement; however, less is known about male survivors, including ways to meet their needs.

This exploratory study examined sexual violence against men and boys in the Syria crisis and their access to services in Jordan, Lebanon, and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The findings and recommendations presented in the report offer a starting point for unpacking and addressing a complex, under-investigated issue.

Global Trends of Forced Displacement in 2017

Multiple ongoing displacement crises and several new ones characterized 2017. As a result, the global population of forcibly displaced people increased to 68.5 million, compared with 65.6 million in 2016. Significant new displacement, affecting millions of people, was seen in particular from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Myanmar as well as continuing displacement due to the Syrian crisis. The past decade has seen substantial growth in the global population of forcibly displaced people. In 2007, this population numbered 42.7 million; over the last 10 years, this figure has increased by over 50 per cent.

Today 1 out of every 110 people in the world is displaced, compared with 1 in 157 a decade ago, with much of this increase having occurred over the last five years.5 While the Syrian conflict contributed significantly to this increase, there have been other major displacements throughout the world over the last five years, notably in and from Burundi, Central African Republic, the DRC, Iraq, Myanmar, South Sudan, Sudan, Ukraine, and Yemen.

Paper

Enabling the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda through SDG 16+

This report seeks to provide an overview of global SDG 16+ action, illustrating SDG 16+ progress and country experiences and the perspectives of multiple stakeholders active on 16+. The report uses the term ‘SDG 16+’, that has been coined to reflect the linkages between goals and targets beyond SDG 16 that embody commitments to peace, justice, and inclusion across all the SDGs. By focusing on SDG 16+, this report recognizes the interdependent nature of SDG 16, its 12 targets and the 24 other targets of other SDGs that directly measure an aspect of peace, justice and inclusion. Multi-stakeholder partnerships are key to delivering on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is no less true for SDG 16+, which serves as an enabler and accelerator for all SDGs. The issue of reporting on peace, justice and inclusion is fundamental to the sustainable development goals. Whatever countries are trying to achieve across the SDGs has to involve key elements of SDG 16+, including effective institutions, participatory decision-making, access to justice for all, a reduction in violence, tackling corruption and access to information. All of the key parts of SDG 16+ are at the fore in the implementation of Agenda 2030.
