JIPS – Initiating Implementation of the International Recommendations on IDP Statistics (IRIS) at Country Level: A Pocket Guide for National Statistical Systems

The Joint Internal Displacement Profiling Service (JIPS) recognises the critical role National Statistical Offices (NSOs) and government agencies within the national statistical system (NSS) play in understanding the internal displacement landscape. This guide provides a concise framework, outlined in six key steps, to assist NSS stakeholders in establishing a system for producing IDP statistics that adheres to international recommendations.

By implementing these steps, NSS entities can contribute significantly to improved data collection, analysis, and dissemination regarding IDPs. This, in turn, strengthens evidence-based decision-making and ensures IDP needs are effectively addressed.
