Launch of the UN SG's Action Agenda on Internal Displacement
This event will be an opportunity to hear from the UN Secretary-General, senior UN leaders, Ambassadors, a former member of the UN Secretary-General's High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement, and IDPs themselves about the UN Secretary-General's Action Agenda on Internal Displacement. Speakers will reflect on how we reached this moment, why the Action Agenda is so important, and next steps from here.
Following the report of the UN Secretary-General's High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement, the Secretary-General decided to develop an Action Agenda on Internal Displacement that would set out steps to better resolve, prevent, and address internal displacement crises. The Action Agenda includes 31 concrete commitments by the UN system, and also makes calls to Member States, International Financial Institutions, and other actors.
