Our shared vision
Where refugees and other forcibly displaced people live an equitable, protected, and dignified life, where they are self-reliant and autonomous.
To provide strategic and technical support, upscaling evidence-based action and leveraging expertise, efficiencies, and best-practice to inform protective, people-centred, needs-based solutions.
To foster collaborative action between WFP and UNHCR with governments and development actors through a shared vision and responsibility, to strengthen inclusion and to support an ethical humanitarian exit.
What we work on
The Joint Hub provides strategic and technical support to UNHCR and WFP collaboration at the global, regional and country level in the following thematic areas.
Purpose of the Joint Hub
The Joint Hub supports country and regional offices to operationalize global commitments on targeting, data sharing, accountability to affected people and enhance joint programming to meet basic needs and promote self-reliance. The Hub supports technical discussions and collaboration between UNHCR and WFP, in addition to filling gaps in technical needs.
Hub support aims to improve quality and timeliness of country response and to build awareness and implement WFP/ UNHCR global frameworks.
Types of Hub support
Working closely with UNHCR and WFP technical teams at the headquarters and regional level, the Hub provides support to some UNHCR-WFP country offices to strengthen joint assessments, monitoring and analysis, the development of targeting strategies, improved accountability to affected populations, joint programming and data sharing and data systems interoperability with an aim to ensure assistance is targeted based on need and in support of refugee self-reliance.
Innovation and learning from country experiences are captured and shared, informing global guidance.
UNHCR and WFP Country Offices that are seeking support to UNHCR-WFP joint engagement can get in touch with the Hub team by writing to [email protected].
The Hub will then organize an introductory call with both UNHCR and WFP Country Office teams and Regional Bureau counterparts to discuss the operational context, support needs and how the Hub can provide support.
Further discussions can then be held to facilitate the development of a Scope of Work document that outlines specific deliverables, and the roles of UNHCR and WFP country and regional teams, and the Hub.
The work of the Joint Hub is made possible thanks to the generous support of two US government entities, USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance, and the US Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (BPRM).
