Side event at the Global Refugee Forum

15 December 2023

Held every four years, the Forum is the world’s largest international gathering on refugees. It is designed to support the practical implementation of the objectives set out in the Global Compact on Refugees: Ease pressures on host countries, enhance refugee self-reliance, increase access to third-country solutions and improve conditions in countries of origin. It provides the opportunity for States and stakeholders to announce concrete pledges and contributions, highlight progress made, share good practices and take stock of the challenges and opportunities ahead.

The World Bank-UNHCR Joint Data Center on Forced Displacement and the Expert Group on Refugee IDP and Statelessness Statistics, with support from UNHCR, held a side event to highlight the multistakeholder pledge Inclusion of Forcibly Displaced and Stateless Persons in National Statistical Systems and Surveys”.
