CRISP - Sustainable Resettlement and Complementary Pathways Initiative
A Resource Platform for Capacity Building and Partnerships
About the CRISP
The Sustainable Resettlement and Complementary Pathways Initiative or CRISP, is a multi-stakeholder and global mechanism which aims to support States and other stakeholders to grow resettlement programmes and advance complementary pathways. It provides targeted capacity building such as training, technical assistance, and deployment of experts. Strengthening the capabilities of communities and individuals, institutions and infrastructure is a critical element to achieve the goals of the Three-Year Strategy. The CRISP was developed jointly by UNHCR and IOM and was launched in 2020. This initiative is a direct outcome of recommendations made by resettlement States and key stakeholders during the Three-Year Strategy consultation process. The CRISP is also a tangible way for States to support the expansion of third country solutions and make concrete contributions and pledges towards the objectives of the Global Compact on Refugees.
This website aims to be a resource platform for capacity building and partnerships. It also gives a statistical overview of refugees that were processed under the CRISP as well as the UNHCR-IOM joint mechanism, the Emerging Resettlement Countries Joint Support Mechanism (ERCM) that ran from 2016-2019.
