Migration & Displacement in Contexts of Crisis: What are LRGs doing to save and protect lives?


As we approach the International Migration Review Forum (IMRF), we are glad to invite you to a peer learning exchange on Local and Regional Government (LRG) actions towards Migration and Displacement in contexts of crisis, organized by UCLG as part of  the Mayors Mechanism (MM), co-steered with the Mayors Migration Council (MMC) and the International Organization on Migration (IOM). 

Amidst alarming rises in figures of disappearances and deaths of people on the move, spurred by the COVID pandemic, armed conflicts, worsening climatic conditions and the exhaustion of resources in many parts of the world, LRGs remain  the closest sphere of government to address the needs of all communities in all circumstances.

This Peer Learning event will gather MM members, international partners and other local actors to discuss and identify the realities, initiatives and challenges of local and regional governments to preserve the life and dignity of all people unconditionally, with a focus on territories enduring  humanitarian emergencies with a view to leverage bottom-up responses and community led approaches to uphold human rights in all circumstances.
