Global Migration Group Side Event in contribution to the 2016 UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants.
The theme was "Development approaches to migration and displacement - supporting national and local capacities to prepare for and respond to large movements.
The objective of this side event was to highlight the importance of development approaches in conjunction with humanitarian responses to address large movements of refugees and migrants at both local and national levels. The side event aimed to provide concrete examples of support provided by the UN system to national counterparts at regional, country and local levels. In doing so, the event aimed to contribute to the UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants, to be hosted on 19 September 2016. Key recommendations from the event will feed into the various Summit Round Table discussions to address the implications of the Summit outcomes for future work.
