Durable Solutions Analysis Explained

In five short videos, the Joint IDP Profiling Service (JIPS) explain what durable solutions are and their relevance in internal displacement situations. Building on the IASC Framework on Durable Solutions for IDPs and the Interagency Durable Solutions Indicator Library, JIPS also look into what a durable solutions analysis entails and – most importantly – how it can be used. The videos can help foster a basic understanding with government, humanitarian and development actors working on durable solutions, such as during thematic training courses and events. The IASC framework, adopted in 2010, is widely recognised as the authoritative document providing overarching guidance to governments, humanitarian and development actors in their efforts to achieve durable solutions to internal displacement. It provides criteria that define what a durable solutions is, and overarching principles for their implementation. However, the framework is largely conceptual and it has proven difficult to directly apply it to the very real challenges in a country.

JIPS together with different UN agencies, NGO and government partners, dedicated three years to translate the IASC framework into a set of agreed-upon, measurable and statistically sound indicators (see They can be used for comprehensive and inclusive durable solutions analysis and monitoring, enabling governments and other actors to see how much, if at all, IDPs have progressed towards a solution across the relevant IASC criteria.

This video series contributes to these efforts by making the concept of durable solutions analysis and criteria from the IASC framework, such as long-term safety and security or livelihoods and employment, more accessible to those working on the subject.
