The Asylum Capacity Support Group provides a framework to match policy pledges made by States to improve their asylum systems with offers of technical, material, and financial support from States or other stakeholders. In preparation for the Global Refugee Forum in December 2023, the Asylum Capacity Support Group Secretariat has developed a pledging guidance to assist all stakeholders interested in making commitments related to asylum capacity to ensure the effective alignment of pledges and maximize their impact.

 The guidance focuses on four key areas:

1) Strong institutional capacities;

2) Legislative and regulatory frameworks that facilitate asylum processing;

3) Procedures, systems and practices that enhance efficiency and quality; and

4) Quality and efficiency through diverse expertise, innovation and research.
