• Migration Desk

The ever-increasing number and scale of crises generated by man-made and natural disasters are forcing high numbers of people to flee their communities, seeking protection and safety within or across international borders. The complexity and unpredictability often create conditions for protracted situations of displacement. This implies large periods and major requirements of emergency and humanitarian assistance for the displaced populations and for the concerned communities, challenging dramatically the implementation of the traditional sustainable solutions: return and reintegration, integration and the resettlement. Transition International promotes more inclusive approaches, recognizing the needs and rights of all crisis affected men, women, boys and girls, including refugees, IDPs, other migrants and the communities that may also be affected by the migration crisis. In accordance with international law and standards the TI assists its clients to design and implement inclusive areas based and context driven methodologies, focusing on early recovery and resilience outcomes, community stabilisation and the integration of the humanitarian, development and security interventions. In this, TI promotes sustainability, complementarity and synergies of activities at the individual, household and community levels, with optimised partnerships among concerned actors. In summary, TI supports the design and implementation of durable solutions that are multisectoral, integrated, community based and owned, decentralised and flexible.
