Preparatory meetings and events

The first High-Level Officials Meeting (HLOM) will take place on 14 and 15 December 2021 at the International Conference Centre (CICG) in Geneva, Switzerland. In the lead-up to the HLOM, several virtual consultations will be conducted to prepare for the cornerstone event in December.  

In addition, UNHCR is convening 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. Stocktaking is conducted either through standalone events or integrated into other events or processes. View a list of all stocktaking events in 2021 here
