Organizational Context

The UNDP Strategic Plan for UNDP (2014-2017) recognizes the importance of preparedness, response, early recovery and the management of the risk cycle as fundamental for development. The objective of the Crisis Response Unit (CRU) is to ensure that UNDP is well positioned to respond in the most timely and effective manner to crisis, focusing primarily on two typologies of crises: sudden onset crisis and complex protracted crisis.

CRU represents UNDP in the international crisis response community. It is responsible for UNDP's engagement with the humanitarian community and works to ensure the development agenda—in particular early recovery—is effectively integrated to the humanitarian architecture and humanitarian financing. CRU represents UNDP in the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) and the Emergency Director's Group and leads UNDP's engagement with the World Humanitarian Summit process (WHS)
Together with Denmark and Turkey, UNHCR and IRC, UNDP, represented by CRU, co-chairs the Solutions Alliance to end displacement, working with partners, including the private sector, to provide solutions to displaced people. UNDP’s Crisis Response Unit in Geneva also chairs the Technical Working Group on Durable Solutions and co-chairs the UNDP internal Technical Working Group on Migration and Displacement. In addition CRU serves as the Secretariat for the Senior Steering Group on Migration and Displacement. CRU supports UNDP’s corporate engagement with external partners on the humanitarian-development nexus, including in the areas of protracted displacement, through both formal and informal inter-agency mechanisms.

Following major events in early 2016, including the Supporting Syria Conference in London and Solutions Alliance Roundtable in Brussels, the displacement agenda for 2016 includes a series of high level events leading up to a Summit on Addressing Large Movements of Migrants and Refugees in the margins the General Assembly in September. As of January 2017, UNDP will assume the rotating chair of the Solutions Alliance Initiative
