Tittel

An innovative tool for faster and more cost efficient response in refugee crises

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

We have in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) created an innovative tool which can improve their emergency response and create safer migration for refugees. In the project we continue to develop and test the tool to prepare for a future implementation within the entire organization of UNHCR. There is no similar tool  available and in the long term, the tool could also be useful for other humanitarian organizations.

The purpose of the tool is to identify efficient networks of strategic warehouses with relief supplies. Such warehouses are extremely important for UNHCR to support their work in existing refugee camps as well as in new sudden onset disasters. An optimized network makes it possible for UNHCR to engage in refugee crises in a faster and more cost efficient way. Thereby, UNHCR can make better use of funding from donors and reach more refugees around the world. As a result, UNHCR can contribute to safer migration within countries and also between regions.

UNHCR is already planning to make changes in their network based on preliminary results from the tool. However, the tool needs to be further developed and tested before it can be fully implemented and used within UNHCR. Our aim is to help UNHCR take the tool to the next level by involving a team of leading researchers and UNHCR´s own experts.
