IDMC is happy to present its Annual Report 2015 which looks back to our achievements and successes but also considers some of the strategic tasks ahead for IDMC.
IDMC has signed a join expert statement on internally displaced persons to present at the High Level Meeting to Address Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants (19 September 2016).
This report documents and analyses the scale, process and impacts of displacement caused by development projects and business activities. IDMC shows through nine cases in India that IDPs suffer detrimental impacts and rarely recover. As the world embarks on implementing the post-2015 global development agendas, IDMC calls for people displaced by development projects and business activities to be priority beneficiaries of development work.
The World Humanitarian Summit is a great opportunity for states and other stakeholders to state their commitment to building regional and national normative frameworks to protect IDPs.
The GRID 2016 report covers internal displacement caused by conflict and sudden-onset disasters. In addition it also explores displacement currently "off the grid", such as that caused by criminal and gang violence, slow-onset disasters like drought, and development projects.
This Quarterly Update covers the activities of the Geneva-based Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) between 1 January and 31 March 2016.
The African Union Commission and the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) Task Team on Law and Policy marked the third anniversary of the entry into force of the Kampala Convention with a workshop focussing on its implementation.
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.
The training package on law and policy making on internal displacement was initially conceived and piloted by IDMC and later revised by the Global Protection Cluster Task Team on Law and Policy to support states and other relevant stakeholders in developing normative instruments on internal displacement.
This Quarterly Update covers the activities of the Geneva-based Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) between 1 October and 31 December 2015.
NRC established IDMC in 1998 in response to a gap in the protection and assistance provided to internally displaced people, and a request from the IASC for comprehensive global data to inform efforts to address it. Today our mandate is as relevant as ever, but we also recognise that we have to evolve to better serve the needs of policy makers, governments, the humanitarian community and IDPs themselves.
The UNHCR High Commissioner's dialogue 16-17 December 2015 presents a unique opportunity to encourage political actors, development experts, human rights advocates, data specialists and many others to inform responses to displacement upon sound analysis and understanding of the underlying drivers of displacement. IDMC's new briefing paper can help all re-think displacement in the context of today's crises.
