Recommendations for the Global Compact on Refugees
DEMAC, Danish Refugee Council Diaspora Programme and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH (Sector Project Forced Displacement, on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, BMZ) submitted joint recommendations for the Global Compact on Refugees’ Programme of Action, bringing together perspectives from a humanitarian and a development point of view.
DRC Diaspora Programme, DEMAC and GIZ’ overall ambition for the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR) is that it becomes an instrument that improves the international community’s performance in fulfilling refugees’ rights to protection and durable solutions. That it will result in better opportunities for refugees and host communities to live in dignity where needs are met, protection is ensured, self-reliance is possible and abilities to pursue solutions are available.
