The UK is a strong supporter of both the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM). We continuously encourage all our UN humanitarian partners to work closely together for maximum impact and efficiency. This includes through the use of performance based core funding, which incentivises the collective performance of the UN Humanitarian Agencies.
