    This webinar highlights learning from the Women's Refugee Commission’s research and pilot interventions in diverse urban contexts: Beirut, Kampala, Quito and Delhi. It will also review examples of GBV risk mitigation strategies tailored for at-risk urban refugees, including adolescent girls, LGBTI refugees, and refugees engaged in sex work.

It will also review examples of GBV risk mitigation strategies tailored for at-risk urban refugees, including adolescent girls, LGBTI refugees, and refugees engaged in sex work.
