24. This agreement does not affect UNHCR`s relationship with its executive committee or the office of the UN Secretary-General, nor does it affect the contractual relationship between UNHCR and an implementation partner. 3. Refugee operations range from complex emergencies, which protect and support hundreds of thousands of refugees, to protection and assistance measures for a limited number of isolated refugees in cities. They may include activities such as protection, care and subsistence, repatriation, reintegration, facility creation, resettlement, representation and representation of interests. Cooperation, coordination and operational approaches are defined by the situation on the ground at each operation and include host governments that have a general responsibility to protect refugees in their own countries. Partners` sources of funding and inputs vary considerably from company to company. The partnership therefore requires a conscious effort by both partners. By signing this agreement, the partners reaffirm their shared commitment to establish mechanisms at the office and headquarters level to ensure the effectiveness of this partnership. FAOP between UNHCR and [xx NGO] aims to establish an active operational partnership by jointly committing to: 23. This agreement reflects a broad framework in which the partners will work. However, the partners agree that, for the implementation of this agreement, it is important that there be local agreements at the operational level that reflect the reality of individual operations. These local operational agreements should address issues described in Sections IV (Consultations and Cooperation) V (Coordinated Assessment, Planning and Implementation) and VI (Effective Use of Resources).

This does not exclude the partners from reaching agreements on other issues specific to an individual operation that will enhance the effectiveness of a common response to a refugee situation. 11. The partners will work together to define the mechanisms necessary to reach agreement on specific guidelines and standards necessary for a specific refugee operation. This may include the creation of one or more sector committees to ensure that operational standards meet and are met by international standards and standards. The spherical project: humanitarian charter and minimum standards[6] can serve as guidelines for the definition of appropriate guidelines and standards. 9. The central contact between the partners is important and may include mailings, briefing meetings and other regular contacts between the relevant staff. All partners in an operation must have access to relevant information on activities and policies relating to refugee operations in which they participate, both at their headquarters and on the ground.
