Skat was requested by the UN high Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to support them in the revision and improvement of their global monitoring system. This work included a desk review and analysis of all relevant documents and consultations with different staff members of UNHCR. Additionally, Skat prepared and moderated a “scoping workshop” with UNHCR’s staff to define the key aspects that needed revision in the Results Framework. As a result, Skat was able to contribute to the improvement of the Agency’s global monitoring system providing key recommendations on data structure, indicators and data management methodologies.
