In the context of the second Global Refugee Forum (GRF), EGRISS is co-leading the Multi-Stakeholder pledge on ‘Inclusion of Forcibly Displaced and Stateless Persons in National Statistical Systems and Surveys’, together with its members from the World Bank-UNHCR Joint Data Center on Forced Displacement (JDC) and L’Institut National de la Statistique de Djibouti (INSTAD) .
Launched in December 2022, the initiative aims to raise visibility of national efforts to include refugees, IDPs and statelessness in the work of national statistical systems and is open to governments, regional and international organizations, civil society, refugee groups and donors.
This year, over 60 pledges were received from host countries, international and regional organisations and donors. Building upon the existing baseline from 2019, this indicates a total of almost 80 pledges. Results were presented during the 2023 Global Refugee Forum. Progress on implementation will be monitored periodically.
