Good practices, challenges and opportunities in the search of durable solutions
The objective of this research is to assess the opportunities posed by the political process for potential solutions in Kenya’s key refugee-hosting counties of Turkana and Garissa. It firstly analyses opportunities presented by devolution which can contribute to the increased self-reliance of refugees. Secondly it focuses on the architecture of devolution in relation to refugee affairs, through the provision of a manual which analyses the legal framework, institutional structures, actors and processes of devolution.
Samuel Hall East Africa, a consultancy registered in Kenya was commissioned by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) in October 2014, to conduct a mid-term review of the second phase of the Great Lakes Civil Society Project (GLP), a regional programme implemented since January 2010 by DRC with funding from the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).
1.1 Background on the project
Juba, 12 May 2014 – On 20 May 2014, the international community will convene in Oslo, Norway, to discuss how to address the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan. In just under five months since fighting erupted, the situation in South Sudan has deteriorated severely, causing 1.3 million people to flee from their homes, including an estimated 300,000 to neighboring countries. Over 4 million people, including over 2.5 million children, are extremely vulnerable to food insecurity, as people have been displaced from their sources of survival. This crisis is worsening on a daily basis.
