Vulnerable Migration and Forced Displacement
Given current trends in global migration and displacement, as well as an increasing amount of fragile settings impacted by such movements, ITC should have a responsive and innovative programme offering for migration or displacement affected communities to support them to build economic resilience through trade-led, market-based solutions. The agency should become the “go-to” UN organization for trade and business-related programming in these contexts and increase its footprint to reach people in need over the next four years.
In 2022, the work to expand the Vulnerable Migration and Forced Displacement portfolio will focus on building a pipeline of window 2 opportunities through research, analysis, project design and stakeholder engagement. Further, the process to customize existing ITC tools to VMFD contexts will begin, focusing on one tool such as integration into the Ye! community, as well as efforts undertaken to enhance internal coordination of work in such settings.
