Worldwide, millions of people are internally displaced because of conflicts and violence, as well as by natural hazards. Addressing their plight is one of the major humanitarian challenges of our time.
IDMC plays an important role in improving national and international responses to internal displacement, especially by:
Both the UN General Assembly and the UN Human Rights Commission have repeatedly called on governments to support IDMC including by providing financial resources.
IDMC launches its 2016 Appeal for 4.9m USD, outlining the organisation’s key activities, amid a year that already presents unprecedented levels of internal displacement as a result of new and protracted crises.
Your contribution, no matter the size, is crucial both as a provider of funds and as agent to promote respect for the rights of IDPs. We hope that together we will continue to contribute to an improved response to the needs of millions of the world’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people.
As a non-governmental body, IDMC is entirely dependent on external funding for its operations.
IDMC welcomes contributions for its general core budget, as well as for specific activities, and seeks, when possible, multi-year commitments from its donors.
IDMC’s work would not be possible without the generous contributions of its funding partners. We would like to thank them for their support in 2015/2016, and we extend particular gratitude to the following contributors:
Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs, Liechtenstein’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sweden’s International Development Cooperation Agency, Switzerland’s Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the UK’s Department for International Development and the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
