Video Message by António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, on the Action Agenda on Internal Displacement 2022.

Description

The UN Secretary-General's Action Agenda on Internal Displacement sets out a vision to better resolve, prevent, and address internal displacement crises. Building on the recommendations of the High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement, it makes 31 concrete commitments for how the UN system will step up its efforts on internal displacement. It emphasizes that, with record numbers of people displaced by conflict, violence, disasters, and the impacts of climate change, more of the same is not good enough in our collective response – bold steps and redoubled efforts are needed if real change is to be achieved.
