Jobs at UNHCR - Zambians - August 2016


Background:
The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is mandated to lead and coordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State.
While UNHCR's primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well being of refugees, our ultimate goal is to help find durable solutions that will allow them to rebuild their lives in dignity. There are three durable solutions pursued by UNHCR for 6.4 million refugees in protracted situations: voluntary repatriation; local integration; or resettlement to a third country. While pursuing durable solutions, UNHCR works to increase the self-reliance and livelihood opportunities of refugees.
UNHCR launched the Global Strategy for Livelihoods 2014-2018 in an effort to inform field operations on how to implement livelihoods programmes and to guide the development of national and local livelihoods strategies.
