1 IGAD SPECIAL SUMMIT ON DURABLE SOLUTIONS FOR SOMALI REFUGEES AND REINTEGRATION OF RETURNEES IN SOMALIA [Draft] Road Map for Implementation of the Nairobi Declaration and Plan of Action IGAD Heads of State and Government met in Nairobi on March 25, 2017 at a Special Summit on Durable Solutions for Somali Refugees and Reintegration of Returnees in Somalia. The Summit was hosted by the Republic of Kenya, and undertaken with the close collaboration of UNHCR and the EU. The Nairobi Declaration and the accompanying Plan of Action were agreed upon during this Summit. These set out a comprehensive regional approach and commitments at four levels: accelerating solutions in Somalia by creating an environment conducive for voluntary and sustainable returns; delivering durable solutions, whilst maintaining protection and asylum space, and promoting the self-reliance and inclusion of refugees in countries of asylum; strengthening sub-regional co-operation; and increasing international responsibility sharing. A principal requirement is the development of a comprehensive IGAD Regional Framework for Durable Solutions for Somali Refugees (hereafter referred to as the IGAD Regional Framework) made up of national plans that set out how to deliver these commitments, supported by the international community and building on the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF) of the New York Declaration on Refugees and Migrants. At the Summit there was strong resolve to see rapid implementation of the Nairobi Plan of Action and the translation of these commitments into concrete results on the ground. The following sets out the key elements of the road map for delivering the Nairobi Declaration and Plan of Action. These are aimed at supplementing and boosting ongoing processes and programmes, with an emphasis on delivering rapid results along the way. A timetable linked to this road map is annexed. National action plans and regional frameworks National action plans will be developed that will set out what policy changes, investments or other actions required in order to deliver on the regional and national commitments set out in the Nairobi Declaration and Plan of Action. They will set out what donor engagement will be required to match resources against requirements. It is proposed that, as far as possible, these plans will be finalised by the end of October, Where feasible, these plans should make use of emerging plans, such as those being developed in Ethiopia and Uganda. These will be wrapped up in an overarching IGAD Regional Framework, to be endorsed by a regional inter-ministerial Committee by November, Thematic meetings and target setting A set of regional thematic meetings on specific issues, such as education, self-reliance or third country settlement will be held. These meetings will provide an opportunity to share experiences and best practices; address bottlenecks and challenges faced; and, set targets 1

2 and milestones on what should be achieved. The meetings will also explore opportunities for tapping into continental and global funds linked to these issues. Results framework IGAD will develop a results framework, setting out strategic objectives, outcomes, indicators and milestones for the implementation of the Nairobi Declaration and the accompanying Plan of Action. The framework will provide the means to track progress in delivering the commitments and the results achieved. This includes regional and national commitments made in the Plan of Action as well as international support. The results framework will be updated to reflect new commitments, milestones and targets. This includes new milestones and targets set in national action plans or following thematic discussions. In July 2017, IGAD will convene a meeting of experts from refugee management agencies, ministries responsible for planning, local governance and other relevant line ministries on this road map and the regional results framework. The meeting will also establish and validate mechanisms to share best practices and monitor progress. Monitoring and reporting The IGAD Secretariat and Member States will be responsible for monitoring the indicators and timelines set in the results framework and generate biannual progress reports. UNHCR will lead a mapping exercise of current and planned humanitarian and development initiatives in the region by mid-july. This will then form the basis for IGAD, Member states and partners to establish a system to regularly monitor the financing of programmes and investments linked to durable solutions and humanitarian assistance. Stocktaking Progress achieved in rolling out the process and, most importantly, results achieved will be taken up at future IGAD Heads of State, Council of Ministers and other meetings. Resource mobilisation Resource mobilisation will be undertaken on a rolling basis. This will include specific national initiatives, such as the Solidarity Summit being held in Uganda in June, There will also be biannual meeting of IGAD Member States and key donors/ifis to take stock of progress made across the region, and what further action and investment is required. The first of these will take place by the end of October Opportunities should also be explored for rapid investment in specific actions that will help demonstrate the international support to the ambitious commitments set by the region at the Summit. Media and communications IGAD will provide, on its website, regular information and updates on the implementation of the Nairobi Declaration and Plan of Action with links to websites of partner Page 2 of 14

3 organisations. IGAD and its partners will create awareness through the media on progress made. Links with continental and international processes IGAD and its partners will pursue opportunities within regional, continental and international platforms to promote, share experiences and mobilise support for the implementation of the Nairobi Plan of Action both at regional and national levels. The achievements made and experience gained from the IGAD process will be fed into the Global Compact on Refugees to be developed by These experiences and gains will be fed into the global consultations scheduled for the first half of Page 3 of 14
