IOM Supports Zakarpattia Communities in IDP Registration
Timely and accurate registration of displaced persons is key to developing the humanitarian response that addresses the most pressing needs of war-affected populations.
To make this process more efficient, IOM, funded by the Government of Canada, has provided laptops to hromada authorities in Zakarpattia Region.
With this assistance, registration workers who often did the records by hand will be able to work with a digital database and efficiently transfer data to the unified registry.
This initiative is implemented jointly by IOM, UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the Charity Foundation Stabilization Support Services (SSS) to support the Ministry of Social Policy, the Ministry of Reintegration of Temporary Occupied Territories and the Ministry for Digital Transformation in registration of IDPs at the local level.
“Host communities in West Ukraine and elsewhere have stepped up in an unprecedented manner to support those fleeing the war. IOM supports local authorities across Ukraine to respond to a crisis of such magnitude,” said Marco Chimenton, IOM Ukraine's Emergency and Stabilization Programme Coordinator.
In addition to provision of equipment, IOM will also contribute to building capacities of registration workers through training and will support the government in raising awareness among IDPs about the possibility and benefits of registration.
