Mission and objectives

UNRCO ARM organization mission TBD


With the support of the UN Office of the Resident Coordinator and in collaboration with the UN Country Team, the UNHCR in Armenia has developed a Refugee Response Plan (RRP) to address the needs of over 100,000 refugees forcibly displaced from NK after the escalation of the hostilities in Sep-tember 19, 2023. To prioritize the integration of the refugee population along with enhancing resili-ence, a development plan would be of key importance after the initial humanitarian response: work-ing around humanitarian-development-peace nexus, stakeholders can work together to foster sus-tainable and inclusive development, social cohesion, thereby reducing the risk of future crises and promoting the well-being and resilience of affected communities.
