IDPs and data: Evidence across the Displacement Continuum


IDPs and data: Evidence across the Displacement Continuum

3 July 2019, 13.30 - 15.30

Room 4, CICG, Geneva

IDMC is jointly organising a session at the 2019 UNHCR Annual Consultations with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), with UNHCR and JIPS. The Consultation is a unique event that provides an important forum for debate on global and regional themes and an opportunity to explore fresh collaboration on advocacy and operational issues. 

The 2019 Consultations will have three main components:

  • Data and evidence
  • The Global Refugee Forum
  • Regionalisation

This session will focus on specific challenges to obtaining reliable data and evidence in internal displacement situations, in line with the thematic priorities of the 2019 UNHCR-NGO Consultations. The session will highlight good practices to help overcome these challenges, and explore how NGOs and humanitarian and development actors can enhance their engagement to assist and support internally displaced people (IDPs).
