Governments Exchange Views on Refugee Compact’s Second Draft

The EU called for ensuring that the compact will be mainstreamed by all UN agencies at all levels, and urged doing this in consistency with the UN reforms. Canada and the Women’s Refugee Commission said they would welcome a reference to sexual and reproductive health, which is not currently in the text. Türk said this is an area of divergence between delegations. Iran stressed the need to include time-bound targets.
