This event will bring together refugee hosting states, donor governments, multilateral institutions, the private sector and civil society to agree on how to accelerate and improve efforts to deliver the education related commitments in the New York Declaration and the Global Compact for Refugees.

It is co-led by Save the Children and UNHCR and co-hosted by the World Bank, UNICEF, UNESCO, GPE, Global Citizen, and Education Cannot Wait. 

  • In 2016 world leaders agreed to strengthen the international response to the global refugee crisis and grow support to meet the needs of refugee and host communities.

    Two years on, this event will bring together refugee hosting states, donor governments, multilateral institutions, the private sector and civil society to agree how to accelerate and improve efforts to deliver the education related commitments in the New York Declaration and the Global Compact for Refugees.

    The meeting will explore efforts to include refugee populations in national education systems, improve learning outcomes for refugee and host communities and support greater responsibility sharing, especially via more and better financing.

    Participants will have an opportunity to share their organisational commitments to refugee education.

    Invitations will be issued separately.
