Forced Displacement: A Global Development Challenge

Follow the event on Twitter #dev4peace

With the number of refugees and displaced persons at historic highs, forced displacement has become a global crisis with developmental repercussions. While refugees are creating a crisis in Europe, host countries in Africa and MENA have been shouldering a much heavier burden for years. Supporting the welfare of refugees constitutes a global public good. Improving the development response will require innovative approaches and close coordination between humanitarian, development and all global partners, including governments. Co-hosted by UNHCR and the World Bank Group, this event will draw on partners’ experience and improved data to inform the discussion on a comprehensive and sustained development approach to the challenge of forced displacement.
