1 DANISH REFUGEE COUNCIL LEBANON Accountability Framework This accountability framework summarizes those DRC commitments to our stakeholders in Lebanon that are additional to DRC s global accountability framework. The global accountability framework is valid for DRC and DDG everywhere; it is available on 1. Brief Description of the Regional Program The Middle East and North Africa remains one of the world's political and humanitarian hotspots characterized by local and regional conflicts as well as complex and unresolved problems of refugees and internally displaced. DRC has been present in the Middle East since late 2003 and was one of the first international humanitarian organizations able to provide assistance following the invasion of Iraq in Over the years the program has developed in both geographical spread and the types of assistance provided following the multiple conflict-induced displacement in the region. Due to the millions of refugees, DRC currently has presence and operations in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Tunisia and Libya. DRC is addressing the needs of the most vulnerable Iraqi, Palestinian, Libyan and Syrian refugees, IDPs, returnees and migrants in the region. In response to the Syrian crisis, DRC has adopted a flexible, holistic and beneficiary-centric approach to protection, emergency response and future durable solutions for displacement affected populations. 2. DRC Lebanon s Objectives, Partners & Stakeholders DRC has been operating in Lebanon since 2004 with the objective of providing protection and assistance to Palestinian refugees in addition to Iraqi refugees and migrant workers. With the massive influx of Syrian refugees into Lebanon at the outbreak of the conflict in Syria in 2011, DRC Lebanon capitalized on its presence and its expertise in emergency response to address the urgent needs and rights of refugees from Syria. The conflict in Syria has entered its fifth year with no imminent solution in sight. The Syrian displacement crisis in Lebanon has moved from an emergency to a protracted displacement situation where transitional and durable solutions must be sought. With a population of around 4 million, Lebanon hosts the second highest number of Syrian refugees in the region with more than 1.2 million 1

2 registered Syrians in addition to some 53,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria (PRS) and about 300,000 Palestinian refugees. With the actual and foreseen decline in the quality of asylum, the continuation of the protracted displacement situation and the centrality of working with transitional and durable solutions, the overall objective of the programme in Lebanon is to contribute to preserving the quality of asylum of the displaced population in Lebanon and to preparing for durable solutions. This will be divided into three strategic objectives: DRC contributes to responding to the needs and rights of displacement affected populations in acute emergency situations; DRC contributes to preserving the protection space of displaced populations while strengthening their social and economic self-reliance in preparation for durable solutions; DRC contributes to promoting the economic recovery of host communities and supporting social cohesion in line with the duty bearer s stabilization efforts; Current or identified Partners and stakeholders engaged with DRC Lebanon to achieve the above objectives: Partners: Feminism Association, Women Charity League Association, The Lebanese Democratic Women s Gathering, Al Hadatha Association, North Local Economic Development Agency, Business Incubation Association in Tripoli, Makhzoumi, Lebanese Red Cross. Stakeholders: Syrian Refugees, Palestinian refugees, Migrant Workers, host communities the Lebanese government (i.e. Ministry of Social Affairs, Municipalities, Ministry of Labour, General Security), UN agencies (WFP, UNDP, OCHA, UNHCR and UNRWA), international and local NGOs (i.e. Concern, PU-AMI, Save The Children, NRC, SOLIDARITES, CISP, IMC, IRD). 3. DRC Lebanon Organisational Chart The management of DRC Lebanon is committed to implementing, maintaining and sharing a documented Accountability Framework. This commitment includes: ensuring that the CHS 1 requirements and the Anticorruption policy are clearly understood, appropriately addressed, implemented and monitored at all levels of the organization. Accountability improvement plans are established as necessary and that the responsibilities of all functions with regard to CHS are clearly defined. 1 The HAP Standard, the Sphere Core Standard and the People in Aid Standard are replaced by a joint Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS), which is increasingly becoming the standard worldwide used to measure the quality of humanitarian action. 2
