This report describes UNHCR's operations in every region of the world during the year 2002. More specifically, it analyses the achievements of the UNHCR with regards to the Five Commitments made by the High Commissioner to refugee women in 2001, which provided the framework for UNHCR's activities in 2002. These five commitments are:

- To ensure individual registration of every man and woman refuge

- To increase to 50 per cent women's representation in leadership committees

- Increased involvement of women in food distribution

- Provision of sanitary materials to all women and girls

- To address sexual and gender-based violence.
