      Highlights
    UNHCR Headquarters in Geneva is establishing the Independent Audit and Oversight Committee (IAOC) to serve in an expert advisory capacity to assist the High Commissioner for Refugees and UNHCR’s Executive Committee in exercising their oversight responsibilities. The Committee will meet up to four times per year in Geneva. UNHCR is seeking to appoint three members to this Committee. Applicants must have recent and relevant senior-level experience in financial oversight, audit and/or inspections. More details are available at http://www.unhcr.org/5a7337d44.
    03 Feb 2018
    UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and the World Bank signed a data sharing agreement. This will strengthen existing data collection processes and enhance technical capacity for a comprehensive analysis of the return process and how best to support the reintegration of returnees over time.
