2006 - 2015 Ten Years of Reforms

This was necessary to increase the percentage of resources directly devoted to protection, assistance and solutions for people of concern and to reduce the share of funding spent on the organization itself, a basic precondition to increasing UNHCR’s efficiency and improving its delivery.
