Ethiopia: The durable solutions initiative
Officially launched in December 2019, the Durable Solutions Initiative (DSI) is a national platform jointly developed by the Government of Ethiopia and the international community to establish an operational framework to find durable solutions for both conflict and disaster-related internal displacements.
The initiative emerged from a need for focused conversations on internal displacement in Ethiopia. It brings together representatives from different government ministries as well as humanitarian, development, and peace state-building actors, donors, civil society and researchers. The DSI also responds to the international community’s commitment to support States in their efforts to significantly reduce internal displacement by working in concert across “institutional divides, mandates and in multi-year frameworks.”
