2019 UNHCR Annual Consultations with NGOs

Working together, better - 3-5 July 2019

UNHCR would like to consult with all its NGO partners on navigating the rapidly changing global refugee context. How do we use data and evidence to make an impact on refugee welfare? How can we harness the promise of the global compact on refugees, and what can we pledge to make it work? How do we maintain integrity, prevent fraud and safeguard those to whom we are responsible? And, as UNHCR undertakes a profound decentralization intended to place resources and decision closer to the field, how can we work with our NGO partners in a more local and regional manner?

This year’s UNHCR Annual Consultations with NGOs therefore have a three main components:

  • data and evidence
  • the Global Refugee Forum
  • regionalization

There will also be room to discuss integrity and safeguarding.

In line with UNHCR’s process of decentralisation and regionalisation, we are pleased to announce that regional consultations will be organised. They will focus on the regional context and operational priorities as well as discussion on Global Refugee Forum.

The first edition of these regional consultations will take place in the MENA region, on 20-21 June in Amman, Jordan.

Kindly note that the Africa regional consultations have been postponed due to the Idai cyclone emergency response. New dates and other useful information will be communicated in due course.
