Why support IDMC
INITIATOR OF ASSISTANCE TO THE INTERNALLY DISPLACED
The IDMC, through its advocacy within the UN system on behalf of the rights of IDPs and the protection of these rights, not only creates a greater awareness of IDPs and their plight, but more specifically, is a unique initiator of assistance to the internally displaced.
Permanent Mission of the Republic
of South Africa in Geneva
Worldwide, some 27.5 million people are internally displaced because of conflicts and violence. Addressing their plight is one of the major humanitarian challenges of our time.
IDMC plays an important role in improving national and international responses to internal displacement, especially by:
- monitoring internal displacement worldwide and maintaining an online database on conflict and violence related internal displacement;
- increasing visibility and awareness of internal displacement and advocating for the rights of internally displaced people;
- providing field-based training on the protection of IDPs;
- contributing to the development of guides and standards for the provision of assistance and protection to internally displaced people
Both the UN General Assembly and the UN Human Rights Commission have repeatedly called on governments to support IDMC (previously the Global IDP Project), including by providing financial resources.

How to contribute to IDMC
Your contribution, no matter the size, is crucial both as a provider of funds and as agent to promote respect for the rights of IDPs. We hope that together we will continue to contribute to an improved response to the needs of millions of the world’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people.
As a non-governmental body, IDMC is entirely dependent on external funding for its operations.
IDMC welcomes contributions for its general core budget, as well as for specific activities, and seeks, when possible, multi-year commitments from its donors.
