Humanitarian Health Action

IASC Framework on durable solutions for internally displaced persons

The Framework, which was endorsed by the IASC Working Group in December 2009, addresses durable solutions following conflict and natural disasters. It describes the key human rights-based principles that should guide the search for durable solutions and establishes the criteria that determine to what extent a durable solution has been achieved. The Framework also offers examples of indicators that, if properly adapted to the local context, can inform efforts to monitor progress towards durable solutions.

Humanitarian and development actors as well as national and local authorities are encouraged to make use of this Framework in their efforts to support durable solutions and help IDPs resume normal lives, in safety and dignity.
