The Age, Gender and Diversity (AGD) Accountability Report 2022 presents the work that UNHCR (the United Nations Refugee Agency) is undertaking to ensure that age, gender and diversity considerations are applied across the various activities of the organization. As an annual corporate initiative, this report shows the efforts to operationalize the 2018 UNHCR Policy on Age, Gender and Diversity (hereafter the 2018 AGD Policy) at global, regional and country operation level, in responding to new1 and existing emergencies and protracted crises worldwide, as well as the challenges that arise when trying to ensure that no one is left behind. The 2022 edition of the AGD accountability report includes reference to the agency and central role played by grass-roots and community-based organizations in the promotion of AGD-inclusive programming, accountability to affected people (AAP) and gender equality. The report also summarizes and spotlights how UNHCR strengthened its organizational accountability and efforts in working with and for groups of different age, gender and diverse characteristics among forcibly displaced and stateless persons. The AGD report mainly draws on quantitative and qualitative data obtained from the Annual Results Reports (ARRs) of UNHCR field operations and from consultations with UNHCR personnel at headquarters and regional bureaux.
