Ensuring the inclusion of displaced persons in recovery

Objective and outcome

Existing effective practices and lessons learned of participatory approaches, methods and practices were presented and discussed. Concrete recommendations to the WRC were made based on the presentations and discussion.

The objective of the session was to 1) share experiences, good practices and collaboration of communities, humanitarian, disaster recovery and actors in socio- economic recovery and resilience for displaced communities; and 2) to identify key bottlenecks and durable solutions in disaster preparedness, response and recovery for displaced persons.

The expected outcomes of the session were to reach i) a shared understanding of the key issues and impediments to inclusive recovery; ii) clarity on what joint initiatives and steps can be taken to strengthen participation of people, especially those in vulnerable groups, in disaster preparedness, response and recovery.
