UNDP and UNHCR marked 60 years of
work on forced displacement at an event
on 17 June. The partnership supports
governments to include forcibly displaced
people in their planning and programming
on governance, rule of law, peacebuilding,
livelihoods and preparedness. Colombia
has one of the world’s largest internal
displacement populations. Under the
Government of Colombia’s Territorial
Development Plans (PDET), UNHCR and
UNDP are implementing a joint durable
solutions project that helps communities
advocate for their rights with institutions
and the private sector, promotes
employment, supports local governments to
generate revenues and provide protection
services. It also analyses and disseminates
knowledge.
