The Call to Collective Action emphasizes the need for self-reliance in addressing the global forced displacement crisis. It highlights the importance of economic inclusion and social protection in providing sustainable solutions for refugees, forcibly displaced individuals, and stateless people. The goal is to empower these populations to make decisions about their futures, regardless of whether they stay in their country of asylum or origin, move to another, or return home.
To achieve this goal, the Mega Pledge on Economic Inclusion and Social Protection has been launched to mobilize commitments from various stakeholders. The pledge seeks to address specific and structural barriers and risks that prevent refugees and other displaced populations from achieving self-sufficiency. It emphasizes the need for inclusive legal and policy frameworks that promote economic inclusion and social protection, including the implementation of policies and programs that reduce the lifelong consequences of poverty and exclusion.
The pledge commitments are backed by evidence and supported by relevant programs, technical assistance, and financing mechanisms. By working together towards a common goal, stakeholders can help ensure that displaced populations have access to the resources they need to thrive and contribute positively to local economies.
