The first High-Level Officials Meeting (HLOM) took place on 14 and 15 December 2021, with an advance day (13 December) set aside for side events. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, the meeting took place in an entirely virtual format.
In addition to the High-Level Officials Meeting, UNHCR convened regional, thematic and stakeholder-specific stocktaking events to identify both progress and the areas where more efforts are needed, particularly in light of the socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In advance of the High-Level Officials Meeting, UNHCR held a series of five virtual preparatory roundtables to help inform the discussions. Speakers and participants were asked to reflect on what has been achieved and what remains to be done. Find more information as well as the recordings on the Preparatory Rountables webpage.
