Aid in action

Supporting local integration and strengthening the humanitarian-development collaboration

A young men smiles for a picture

RRP partners in Zambia support the local integration programme, which aims to bridge the gap between traditional humanitarian assistance and longer-term development interventions. Social services, and infrastructural and sustainable economic opportunities are offered mainly for the most protracted refugee situations as well as the ongoing Congolose response. In addition, the local integration programme contributes to the strategic objective of the Zambia-United Nations Sustainable Development Partnership (2016-2021) to foster inclusive socioeconomic development and refugee participation. The local integration programme taps into the comparative advantages of nine UN agencies working in close cooperation with Government authorities and local partners.
