UNHCR Policy on Emergency Preparedness and Response 2023
This Policy establishes the overarching framework for UNHCR’s engagement in emergency preparedness and response, based on its mandate and inter-agency commitments, including as a member of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC). It sets out the key principles guiding the relevant actions and establishes the highlevel roles and procedures to achieve them. In order to do so, the Policy empowers and requires country operations to be proactive in preparing for and responding to emergencies based on sound situational risk analysis and monitoring.
