Business Continuity Planning

Last updated:
Key points
  • BCP is an essential planning tool that reduces operational uncertainty and risk. UNHCR expects Representatives to prepare BCPs before an emergency starts, especially where the security situation is volatile.
  • The process of preparing a BCP can be as important as the BCP itself because it makes staff conscious of how to respond in an emergency. Involve partners, persons of concern, and different functional units: they should actively contribute when BCPs are drafted.
  • Test the plan, or elements of it, before full scale implementation.
