IASC framework on durable solutions for IDPs
Protection for internally displaced persons ultimately entails ensuring a durable solution to their plight. Yet, the difficulties it takes to achieve durable solutions cannot be underestimated. Durable solutions are not simple solutions, because they are usually linked to larger struggles for peace, security, territorial control, equal treatment and an equitable distribution of resources. Concerted efforts involving multiple actors – Governments, international and non-govermental organizations and, most importantly, IDPs themselves – are required to gradually make progress.
