24/10/2017 - As the world grapples with an unprecedented refugee crisis, the OECD will present a new report examining developed country responses to forced displacement in developing countries on the sidelines of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) High-Level Meeting on 30 October at the OECD Conference Centre (2 rue André-Pascal, 75016 Paris.)
Responding to Refugee Crises in Developing Countries: What Can We Learn From Evaluations? includes case studies on Afghanistan, Uganda, Ethiopia and South Sudan. Monday’s event will be an opportunity to discuss how lessons from the past should feed into forthcoming guidance from the DAC on responding to refugee crises.
Speakers include UNHCR Assistant High Commissioner for Protection Volker Türk; Development Assistance Committee Chair Charlotte Petri Gornitzka and OECD Director of Development Co-operation Jorge Moreira da Silva.
The event is open to media. Journalists are invited to contact Juliet Lawal in the OECD Media Office (firstname.lastname@example.org, +33 1 45 24 13 69) to register attendance, or to request a copy of the report.
Working with over 100 countries, the OECD is a global policy forum that promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
