This briefing note defines durable solutions programming and outlines its principles and enabling factors. An overview of the different types of interventions and approaches that constitute durable solutions programming is also provided. The key message is that action can be taken to support durable solutions in all contexts, even where the durable solutions themselves remain a distant prospect. Durable solutions programming must also always be local relevant and context-specific. The ideas and approaches outlined in this briefing note will be expanded further in a toolkit being
developed by DSP.
