Webinar on Local Authorities and Protracted Refugee Crises

Webinar on Lessons Learnt on Local Authorities and Protracted Refugee Crises

On 12 December, join us for an online event focusing on the theme of inclusion, in which we will be discussing recommendations from municipalities on the frontline of receiving displaced populations as part of their commitment to create inclusive communities. 

Faced with massive displacement as a result of conflicts in Ukraine and elsewhere, municipalities and other local authorities are at the forefront of responding to the needs of the displaced. Playing a key role as first responder to provide immediate assistance and support to those affected, local authorities are often tasked with helping them to navigate the new reality in their host community, but also to foster their inclusion in local society and economy as their presence becomes more protracted.

This webinar will focus on recommendations including considerations relating to immediate emergency response and steps which can be taken early on to facilitate community recovery and longer-term local development. We will also have a look at how existing tools can help local authorities, such as the Effective Toolkit for Refugees, GTFM Reports, and the Lampedusa Charter.

Simultaneous interpretation will be available in Arabic, English, French, and Turkish.

This webinar is free to attend.
