Policies and Strategies
The Intergovernmental Conference to Adopt the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, will be held in Marrakesh, Morocco on 10 and 11 December 2018.
The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration is the first, intergovernmentally negotiated agreement, prepared under the auspices of the United Nations, to cover all dimensions of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive manner.
This Global Plan of Action for Sustainable Energy Solutions in Situations of Displacement (GPA) was introduced at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in 2018. This is a non-binding document based on extensive exchanges among various stakeholders from humanitarian and development organizations, the private sector, governments, academia, not-forprofit organizations and others, starting with the Berlin ‘Energy for Displaced People’ conference on 15–16 January 2018.
The scale of internal displacement has risen to unprecedented levels. Over 40 million people are currently displaced by conflict inside their own countries, a number that represents 62 per cent of the total number of displaced persons worldwide. In addition, disasters displace an average of 26 million people annually.
Vulnerability and resilience in households define the extent to which environmental change causes movement as well as the types of mobility that occur. Vulnerable households benefit from increased resilience – for example through facilitated remittances transfers - and information about expected changes in the environment.
