CMI Facilitates a Preparatory Meeting for a High Level Stakeholder Conference on the Syrian Refugee Crisis

  • June 23, 2015, Paris, France

     

    The CMI in partnership with the World Bank, the French Development Agency (AFD) and the United Nations held a consultative meeting to discuss proceedings for a high level stakeholder conference on the Syrian refugee crisis in the Mashreq to take place on 7-8 September, 2015. The consultative meeting aimed at: (i) taking stock of regional changes since 2012 in link with the Syrian crisis and how donors have previously engaged, (ii) discussing projections going forward, including adjustments of donor response and government policies, and (iii) designing a common agenda for the September conference to be held at the CMI Marseille. The objective of the event will be to raise awareness about long term development implications of the refugee crisis in the region and prepare for a joint effort to support the refugees and the hosting governments in their development agenda. Innovative avenues of support to provide governments and hosting communities with access to concessional funding to mitigate the crisis, as well as relevant knowledge and good practices will be explored. The event will be facilitated by the CMI.
