Ban Hunger and Poverty, Not People: Leveraging community leadership and gender-focused strategies in a world of forced displacement
This event, co-hosted by Church World Service and The Hunger Project, will focus on the need for integrated, gender-focused community-led solutions that economically empower persons on the brink of displacement and migration.
There are 65.3 million displaced persons today. No one should lose crucial development opportunities due to conflict or poorly decentralized basic services. Yet, displaced persons, especially women, are disproportionately affected economically, politically, and socially.

Azza Karam, Senior Advisor on Culture, UNFPA
