UNHCR prioritized global strategic priorities covering:

  • GSP 3: Reducing protection risks faced by person of concern, in particular, discrimination, sexual and gender based violence and specific risks faced by children; special attention and priority to address SGBV. Enhanced protection referral for persons of concern with special needs and monitoring mechanisms implemented and targeted programmes for adolescents and youth maintained. BID processes will continue for UASC.
  • GSP 5: Promoting human potential through increased opportunities for quality education.
  • GSP 6: Expanding opportunities for durable solutions for persons of concern, particularly those in protracted situations, including through strengthening the use of comprehensive approaches and contributing to sustainable reintegration, local settlement and successful resettlement in third countries: UNHCR aims at submitting 1,300 refugees for resettlement in 2016 and the same number in 2017.
