UNHCR Innovation uses a three-step approach to nurture and facilitate innovation within UNHCR. We look for innovations already happening within UNHCR and amplify them. We connect innovators within UNHCR to resources, to one another, and to external partners and mentors. And, we explore and adapt innovations outside of UNHCR to refugee-specific contexts.
RAIS is an Inter-Agency tool for tracking assistance, referrals, and assessment information. It enables UNHCR and partners to share assistance records, cross-check beneciary lists, and host dierent types of data. RAIS is synchronized with proGres, UNHCR’s registration database, from which refugee data from all UNHCR eld oces is updated daily. A data sharing agreement with UNHCR is a prerequisite for accessing RAIS.
