Some latestdevelopment in policy and planning related to Refugee Inclusion

·        TheGovernment of Rwanda (GoR) has signed the Comprehensive Refugee ResponseFramework (CRRF) which has focus on inclusion of the refugees in the nationalsystem as well as inclusion of the host communities by taking a whole ofsociety approach. There is a need to adjust the Strategy to reflect the keyfocus areas, approach and principles of the new framework. This includes butnot limited to sharing the burden of budgets (in other words resource mobilization and development partnership); extending the focus toinclude the local host communities alongside the refugees for enhancing theirself-reliance.

·        TheUnited Nations Development Assistance Plan (UNDAP) II has been agreed with theGovernment of Rwanda with specific results on Refugee Inclusion for the periodof 2018-2023.

·        UNHCRGlobal Strategy for 2019-23 has been initiated with some shift in focus andstrategic approaches.

·        InFeb 2019, the GoR has developed and approved (by the SocialCluster of Ministers)a ‘Strategic Plan for Refugee Inclusion’, which reaffirms its’ commitmentto an update of the Joint GoR-UNHCR Economic Inclusion Strategy as a prioritytask alongside developing communication plan and implementation of the RevisedEconomic Inclusion Strategy. TheStrategic Plan has emphasized on the delivery of commitments made at theleader’s summit. One of the key commitments is to enhance self-reliance,economic inclusion and livelihoods of the refugees alongside their host communities.

In this background, theGoR (through the Ministry in charge of Emergency Management) and UNHCR agreedto update and recast the strategy through a joint review, analysis andconsultation with relevant stakeholders both at national and field levels.
