Joint UNHCR-OCHA Note on Mixed Situations Coordination in Practice

This Note provides guidance on how--in "mixed" settings where the populations of humanitarian concern include refugees, IDPs and other affected groups--the leadership and coordination mechanisms should function in practice. It sets out the respective accountabilities, roles and responsibilities of the Humanitarian Coordinator and UNHCR Representative in contributing to the IASC-agreed strategic outputs of coordination. Supporting this, the table provided also outlines the practical interaction of IASC coordination and UNHCR's refugee coordination arrangements in two contexts: (1) where refugees are present in the country in a separate geographic area from IDPs and other affected populations, and (2) where refugees are present in the same geographic area as IDPs and other affected populations.
