Stakeholders Meetings on Implementation of GCR
The NCFRMI, Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management & Social Development and the UNHCR organized a 2-day Stakeholders’ Meeting on Implementing the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR) on December 11th, 2020.
The HFC, represented by Mr. Tai Ejibunu, Dir. Refugees & Migration, stated that the meeting provides a platform to prepare for enhanced awareness while ensuring a common understanding of core GCR elements amongst key actors and operationalization of the GCR tenets in Nigeria.
Nigeria has come up with four pledges which highlight core areas of interest for durable solutions for Persons of Concern (POCs).
These pledges center on inclusion of PoCs in the national development plan, strengthening protection capacity, ensuring availability and access to durable solutions and ensuring active participation at regional and sub-regional efforts to address root causes of displacement.
