Humanitarian Talks


This session will discuss efforts by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in jointly supporting countries to advance nationally owned solutions for internally displaced persons. This session will highlight concrete examples from recent efforts in several internal displacement contexts, demonstrating the opportunities and the challenges in advancing IDP solutions through humanitarian-peace-development collaboration. It will present the efforts made to further local capacity building, localised financing models, new and innovative partnerships, and the promotion of women-led organisations, in line with the OECD DAC recommendations on the HDP nexus. This session will identify concrete recommendations on how to advance the localisation agenda through accelerating nationally owned solutions and expanding the resource base through complementary international-regional-national financing, based on reflections and lessons learned from the perspective of national partners including from governments, civil society and the private sector.
