Core Logo

CORE is UNHCR’s enhanced information management approach to new refugee emergencies. CORE products are produced and regularly published at the beginning of a response to new or deteriorating refugee emergencies. They focus on:

1. Population movements, 2. Humanitarian need, and 3. Delivery of assistance.

CORE products are designed to become more detailed, precise, and data-centric over time.

CORE also supports coordination through the rapid and continuous external release of the latest data available. UNHCR releases CORE products for all new refugee emergencies, helping governments, UNHCR, and partners to communicate with one voice on behalf of the forcibly displaced. As an emergency operation establishes regular systems, CORE products will be replaced by standard UNHCR branded information products.

The map below shows where CORE has already been activated.
