Age, Gender, and Diversity Tip Sheet for Global Refugee Forum Pledges


Helping Ensure Age, Gender, and Diversity Inclusive Pledges and Good Practices for the Global Refugee Forum

Ahead of the Global Refugee Forum (GRF) taking place in Geneva from December 17-18, 2019, WRC, together with CARE International, Plan International, and the UNSW Forced Migration Research Network, has developed a “tip sheet” to help stakeholders ensure their pledges, contributions, and good practices for the first GRF are more effective and put “people first” by incorporating age, gender, and diversity, including disability (AGD), considerations.

The guidance has been endorsed by more than 20 organizations including:
ACT Alliance, Act for Peace, AMES Australia, Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network (APRRN), Australian National Committee on Refugee Women (ANCORW), CARE International, Danish Refugee Council (DRC), INTERSOS, International Rescue Committee (IRC), Jesuit Refugee Service Australia, Justice Centre Hong Kong, Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network Australia (MYAN), National Union of Women with Disabilities of Uganda (NUWODU), PHALS from Bangladesh, PLAN International, Settlement Services International (SSI), Townsville Multicultural Support Group Inc. (TMSG), UNSW Forced Migration Research Network, Women Deliver, Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC), Women Refugee Route
