On 19 September 2016, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the New York Declaration on Refugees and Migrants, calling for greater burden sharing by the international community to support the world's largest refugee hosting states. The New York Declaration called on UNHCR to develop and initiate the application of the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF) in close coordination with relevant states and in collaboration with relevant UN agencies, applying a multi-stakeholder approach. The objectives of implementing the CRRF are to: (i) ease pressure on host countries; (ii) enhance refugee self-reliance; (iii) expand access to third-country solutions; and (iv) support conditions in countries of origin for return in safety and dignity. The New York Declaration and the CRRF stress the need to engage development actors in a sustainable response for refugees and host communities. The CRRF promotes inclusion of refugees in the delivery of national services, such as education and health, as well as national development plans and programmes, supporting these priorities where possible. The CRRF aims to bring on board additional partners into the refugee response, including those who have been less involved in refugee response, by mobilising their respective areas of expertise and interest to contribute to a broad-based intervention. The roll-out of the CRRF requires intensive efforts throughout pilot countries, including consultations with a broad range of internal and external interlocutors at national, regional and district levels - in particular the various government offices which need to be involved as part of the CRRF roll-out.
There are two pilot regions in the world: East Africa and Central America. In the Central America situation, the regional CRRF is referred to as the Comprehensive Regional Protection and Solutions Framework, or MIRPS, for its acronym in Spanish. Honduras is the first country that accepted being a MIRPS pilot in the Americas. At a regional meeting in San Pedro Sula, Honduras on October 26, 2017, six states officially joined the regional CRPSF/MIRPS
UNHCR is working with national authorities to create a Steering Committee led by the Government to coordinate the roll-out of the MIRPS, including a mapping exercise and gap analysis among the first steps. This will further inform the priority areas of engagement and indicators for initial progress for the application of the CRRF in Honduras.
Against this background, UNHCR is hiring a CRR (Comprehensive Refugee Response) Associate as part of temporary support staff with the dedicated role to support the roll-out of the MIRPS in the Honduras Operation.
