UN Resident Coordinator's Office in Sudan

The UN Resident Coordinator is the designated representative of the UN Secretary-General in Sudan and guides the UN’s engagement in development activities in the country. The Resident Coordinator’s main responsibilities include ensuring the coordination of the UN’s development activities, creating a platform of coordinated delivery, and promoting the enhancement of national capacities; and ensuring effective advocacy of UN values, standards, principles and activities on behalf of the UN with the highest level of Government.

UNHCR - The UN refugee agency, Communicating with Communities - MMP

Advocacy is a key element in UNHCR activities to protect refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced people and stateless people. It is a cornerstone of protection strategies, used in combination with activities such as information dissemination, monitoring and negotiation. These can help transform policies and services on national, regional or global levels to better protect people for whom UNHCR bears responsibility.

In both countries of asylum and countries of origin, UNHCR works within national political, economic, and social structures that directly affect the lives of refugees and other people of concern to bring policies, practices and laws into compliance with international standards.

In situations of forced displacement, UNHCR employs advocacy to influence governments and other decision-makers, non-governmental partners and the public at large to adopt practices ensuring the protection of those of concern to UNHCR.
