Conference on internal displacement and sustainable development


We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming 



Sustainable Development Goals wheel


18 October 2018

Espace Gallatin, Domaine de Penthes

Chemin de l'Impératrice 18, Geneva 

2018 is the year of the 20th anniversary of the Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement and of the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC), established in 1998 as the world's authoritative source of data, research and analysis on internal displacement. To mark the occasion, IDMC invites you to an interdisciplinary conference that will bring together insights from new research on human mobility, economics and sustainable development, with the experience of humanitarian and development practitioners and policy makers.
With a focus on the Sustainable Development Goals directly related to internal displacement and corresponding national priorities, the conference will explore what it means to integrate the concern for reducing internal displacement into national development and economic planning today and in the future. Our agenda provides more detail. 
The day will conclude with a reception at 5.30pm to celebrate the double anniversary of the Guiding Principles and of IDMC. 


NOTE: RSVP by emailing no later than close of business 10 October 2018. There is limited parking available at Domaine de Penthes. To get there by bus, take the V or Z to Pregny, Penthes


For its next issue, the Journal of Internal Displacement is collaborating with IDMC to build on the outcomes from the conference, as well as inviting additional contributions that explore how internal displacement concerns fit into national and global sustainable development efforts and the UN prevention agenda.
