      Operational context

    The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) introduced its current Results-Based Management (RBM) approach in 2009, based upon a comprehensive Results Framework and ‘Focus’, the organization’s RBM tool. UNHCR’s RBM system has been supporting the organization in making decisions based on evidence, being accountable for results and efficiently and effectively delivering and reporting on the protection and solutions results achieved for refugees and other people affected by displacement. Today, UNHCR faces a rapidly changing external and internal environment. Externally, UNHCR is impacted by ever growing demands by a myriad of stakeholders for better accountability and transparency while responding to damning number of people affected by displacement. In addition, the organization must align with the reforms of the UN Sustainable Development System and implement the agreements within the Global Compact on Refugees. Internally, UNHCR is also shifting its focus to its field operations by regionalizing its regional directors’ offices and decentralizing greater levels of authority and accountability to the region, so it can be closer and more responsive to the needs of displaced people and host communities.

    In this context, UNHCR’s RBM undertaking is being re-conceptualized as a transformative change initiative, aiming to facilitate the organization’s ability to manage and showcase results. The RBM Renewal Project aims at strengthening UNHCR’s ability to pursue its strategic directions and empower its field operations to strengthen their strategies and plans based on their operational context, while maintaining a viable level of cohesion and data aggregation globally. The project envisages six work streams: (1) process, (2) RBM approach, (3) change, culture and communication, and (5) technology solution.
