Since the endorsement of the International Recommendations on Refugee and IDP Statistics (IRRS and IRIS), the EGRISS Secretariat has been monitoring their implementation at national, regional, and global levels. The examples below demonstrate that several countries and institutions have made concrete steps to better include forcibly displaced populations into data collection efforts. Country and institutional experiences provide important lessons learned on the applicability of the recommendations that can be shared with other actors conducting similar exercises. These examples further inform the priorities of EGRISS moving forward.
Read below examples of how countries have started to apply the recommendations to harmonize definitions and concepts, include refugees and IDPs in national data collection exercises, build capacity and improve the coordination between different stakeholders working in the area.
