At the end of December 2019, the United Nations Secretary-General
established a High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement. The panel
had several findings and made recommendations which have been
streamlined into The UN Secretary General’s Action Agenda on
Internal Displacement. The Action Agenda has three interlinked goals
set for the UN, States, and other actors to achieve, i.e. help IDPs find a
durable solution to their displacement; prevent new displacement
crises from emerging and; ensure those facing displacements
receive adequate protection and assistance.
As part of our commitment to address policy gaps and find
durable solutions to internal displacement, the GENIDA Network
is convening a webinar to examine the Action Agenda in light of
the current state and continued increase in the number of IDPs
in Africa. This webinar will hear perspectives from different
stakeholders regarding the UN Secretary General’s Action
Agenda on Internal Displacement.
