Durable solutions to refugee crisis
We were engaged to conduct a review of a multi-donor fund established to support host communities and refugees to cope with the crisis in the Middle East.
Through desk research, field visits to Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon and interviews with key stakeholders and beneficiaries, we provided an assessment of the performance by the supported partners.
The review provided strategic direction for the multi-donor fund including how to link up with other instruments in the region to scale-up innovative, durable solutions. Based on the review findings and recommendations, the multi-donor fund had its timeframe extended and budget increased.
In pursuit of looking at the bigger picture, we are developing a methodology for parsing out and mapping the ways in which our work contributes to sustainable development goals (SDGs)
