Global Refugee Forum

Global Refugee Forum 1
The Global Refugee Forum, was held at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland in December 2019, and was the first ever world gathering on refugees of its kind. The Federal Government of Somalia participated with a very high-level delegation led by the Former Prime Minster of Somalia H.E. Hassan Ali Khaire. Somalia made three high level commitments at the forum:
  • Relocation and Reintegration for 5,000 Refugees, 25,000 Refugee-Returnees and 50,000 IDPs across Federal Member States, including provision of protection and basic services.
  • Creation of 250,000 new jobs (25% for IDPs and Refugee-Returnees) by creating an environment that enables the private sector to create jobs in agriculture, light manufacturing and construction sectors.
  • Find a permanent solution for the recurring flood/drought cycle that leads to displacement along the Shabelle and Jubba River regions.
  • Strengthening the provision of durable solutions to all displaced populations and refugee-returnees through developing an inclusive and rigorous National Durable Solutions Strategy and reinforcing the National Durable Solutions Secretariat.
