Fragility Forum 2020 | Refugee Policies: Increasing Self-Reliance and Economic Inclusion in Protracted Crises

June 23, 2020

World Bank Group Headquarters

This Event has Concluded.

Read the comments below!

Close to 80% of refugees are displaced for more than five years, in most cases hosted by developing countries. The refugees' economic inclusion in their host communities and their ability to support themselves become key to sustainably manage these protracted situations, yet refugees are often legally barred from formal work. Suitable policies and strategies must accompany financing to improve these situations.

This session will discuss experiences assessing refugee policies in Uganda, Ethiopia, Jordan, Colombia, and others and how to use them to inform dialogue with other refugee-hosting countries.
