REFUGEE PARTICIPATION PLEDGE

Pledge Text:

In accordance with the commitments established under goal 6 of the Grand Bargain to support a “Participation Revolution “; we pledge to support the meaningful participation of refugees and host communities in decisions that affect their lives. Participation should take into account the diversity within communities, including age, gender, and disability. This pledge will support the agency of those we seek to assist while improving the relevance, quality, transparency and accountability of that assistance. We furthermore commit to share experiences on the implementation of this pledge at subsequent Global Refugee Forums and/or high-level officials’ meetings.
