Forcibly Displaced: Towards a Development Approach Supporting Refugees, the Internally Displaced, and their Hosts
October 4, 2016Geneva, Switzerland

Xavier Devictor, Fragile, Conflict and Violence Adviser at the World Bank Group, presented a new report prepared by the World Bank in close cooperation with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR): "Forcibly Displaced: Towards a Development Approach Supporting Refugees, the Internally Displaced, and their Hosts". It was presented during a side event of UNHCR ExComm, as well as discussed with IOM and ICRC in Geneva

Based on a thorough review of available evidence, this report articulates key elements of a development response to forced displacement, which is complementary to, but distinct from humanitarian interventions, and focused on the medium-term socio-economic dimension of the crisis. The report was initially launched in New York in an event with President Kim of the World Bank and High Commissioner Grandi of UNHCR on September 19. It was presented in late September - early October in Washington DC, Brussels, Copenhagen, Oslo, London, Paris, Rome, and Berlin.
