In an effort to generate recommendations for stakeholders responding and driving solutions on internal displacement, the UN Secretary General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement issued a public call for bold, creative and practical inputs. Responding to the call for submissions, JIPS provided actionable and forward-looking recommendations which focus on data and evidence for all actors involved in addressing internal displacement. Building on its 11+ years of experience supporting collaborative, data-driven efforts in over 25 different contexts, JIPS showcases in this submission the transformative power of data processes on internal displacements situations.
Read the full submission to find out about our recommendations, which we illustrated with case studies from our own experience. Also check out our separate policy paper, jointly submitted with UN-Habitat and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), on the need to rethink our approaches in order to better work with the realities of internal displacement in an urban world.
