The DRC Registration Roster

The DRC Registration Roster supports UNHCR’s work within registration and identity management of asylum-seekers, refugees and other persons of concern. Members of the Registration Roster are deployed to UNHCR operations globally and at short notice to assist with the important work of registration and verification of refugees and their needs.

DRC Registration and Identity Management Deployment Scheme

Registration and identification of refugees and people of concern are key to know who has arrived and based on this to facilitate access to basic assistance and protection. The process of registration provides comprehensive data to identify needs within a population and to program planning including shelter, food and water assistance. Registration data is also an important tool in ensuring the integrity of refugee protection systems and preventing and combating fraud, corruption, and crime.

Since June 2019 DRC has supported UNHCR’s work within registration and identity management of asylum-seekers, refugees and other persons of concern by facilitating mobilization and deployment of experts. Our experts are deployed to UNHCR operations globally, at short notice, and to assist with the important work of registration and verification of refugees and their needs.

Common to all members of the DRC Standby Roster is that they committed, professional and high-performing humanitarian workers ready to deploy to UN operations worldwide. The DRC Registration Roster hosts two main profiles within the following technical areas:

  • Registration
  • Operations Data Management

You can see examples of ToR’s here.
