Durable solutions analysis entails a systematic and principled process of employing an analytical framework, based on the IASC Framework on Durable Solutions for IDPs, to measure progress towards durable solutions to internal displacement and to identify priorities for action.

The Durable Solutions Analysis Guide presents the different elements of a comprehensive durable solutions analysis. It outlines five steps for carrying out such an exercise in collaboration with the various partners supporting solutions, as well as how to engage with displaced and displacement-affected communities.

Durable Solutions Analysis Guide

This Guide outlines:

  1. What durable solutions for IDPs are and why a durable solutions analysis is needed;
  2. What the key characteristics of a durable solutions analysis are, in line with the IASC Framework; and
  3. Concrete recommendations regarding the process of how to plan a durable solutions analysis.

IASC Framework on Durable Solutions for Internally Displaced Persons

The 2010 IASC Framework on Durable Solutions for Internally Displaced Persons is widely recognised as the internationally agreed benchmark to work towards solutions for IDPs.

The IASC Framework determines that “a durable solution is achieved when IDPs no longer have specific assistance and protection needs that are linked to their displacement and such persons can enjoy their human rights without discrimination resulting from their displacement”.
