Using Socio-Economic Evidence in Practice in Forcibly Displaced Settings

This publication highlights a collection of instances where recently generated data and evidence are used in practice by UNHCR and its partners to protect and advance solutions for forcibly displaced people and host communities. This work is evidence of UNHCR prioritizing data and evidence in its response. From piloting tried-and-tested development approaches in forced displacement contexts to undertaking new initiatives, the featured examples illustrate research that is responsive to operational needs and focused on outcomes fundamental to refugee self-reliance: livelihoods, mental health, empowerment of women, food security, building solid beginnings for children, and inclusion of refugees in national systems.
