Through this pledge, we seek to foster an enabling environment in which refugees and affected communities engage directly in developing solutions. An inclusive approach will ensure refugee and host communities are treated with dignity, enjoy their rights and do not face discrimination, abuse, exploitation or protracted displacement. We commit to practicing a multi-stakeholder approach, strengthening collaboration between initiatives and other stakeholders to guarantee positive changes in the humanitarian system and refugee response at all levels.
We are asking organizations, governments, funders and interested individuals to consider: How can you support and amplify the voices and impact of refugee-led initiatives in your work?
If you are a refugee or part of an refugee-led organization, we are asking: How can we work together to strengthen our communities so that no one is left behind?
