Concept note activities should primarily support displaced persons and refugees in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. Concept note activities are restricted to beneficiaries living outside of government or UNHCR-run camps, unless otherwise noted in the country-specific guidance.
Because of Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) mandate to provide protection, assistance, and sustainable solutions for refugees and victims of conflict, PRM will consider funding only those projects that include a target beneficiary base of at least 50 percent refugees for each objective of the program.
In Iraq only, the 50 percent target beneficiary base may include both internally displaced persons (IDPs) and IDP returnees in addition to, or in lieu of, refugees.
PRM encourages the inclusion of refugee beneficiaries who are not Syrian or Iraqi to promote an equitable approach among refugee nationalities, based on PRM’s commitment to the “one refugee approach”.
Wherever possible, programs should pursue a community-based approach that also benefits host communities and that promotes social cohesion between refugees and host communities.
