Global Compact on Refugees
- Ease pressures on countries that host refugees
- Enhance opportunities for refugees to become self-reliant
- Expand refugees’ access to third-country solutions such as resettlement and other pathways
- Support conditions in refugees’ countries of origin so that they may be able to return in safety and dignity.
The key global arrangement is the Global Refugee Forum where States and other actors come together every four years to take stock of progress made and pledge further contributions to help reach the objectives of the Compact.
