UN - Shining a Light on Internal Displacement: A Vision for the Future - September 2021
Reports and Assessments
Report of the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement advocates for nationally owned solutions for more than 55 million people displaced within their own countries. Shining a Light on Internal Displacement: A Vision for the Future urges Governments to take a “development-oriented approach” to solutions for their citizens and residents displaced by violence, conflicts, disasters and the impacts of climate change. The Panel presented its report to UN Secretary-General António Guterres at today’s event, calling on Governments, civil society, the international community and the private sector to step up collective action to end protracted displacement. The report laments “a collective failure” to prevent, address and resolve internal displacement, but it also identifies real opportunities to bring about shifts in the approaches and practices required to end unnecessary suffering.
