EXCEL Awards Finalist - UNHCR, Global Compact for Refugees

DIGITAL MEDIA - Website (General Excellence) Finalist

UNHCR Global

The Global Compact on Refugees (GCR) is a groundbreaking initiative that provides a comprehensive framework for sharing responsibility and finding sustainable solutions to refugee situations. At its core, the GCR recognizes that international cooperation is crucial in supporting host communities and ensuring that refugees are able to lead productive and fulfilling lives.


The Challenge

Vardot is proud to have partnered with the GCR team to enhance their online presence and bring their mission to a wider audience. GCR need a complete website redesign with a more consistent and visually appealing branding and theming approach, optimized search functionality. Their requirements included a seamless implementation of Solr search to index thousands of articles and resources with different tags and metadata.


Our Approach

As part of the redesign, we developed a mobile-responsive site that prioritizes accessibility and a better user experience, ensuring that all resources are properly organized and easy to access. We also conducted a full migration of the website's content to make it more user-friendly and easier to navigate.


Our partnership with the GCR team has been a resounding success, and we are proud to have contributed to such an important initiative. The improved website has enabled the GCR to more effectively communicate their mission to a wider audience, increasing awareness of the critical work they are doing to support refugees and host communities around the world.

With Vardot's expert guidance and support, the GCR has taken a significant step forward in fulfilling its mission, and we look forward to continuing our partnership in the years to come.
