Displaced Livelihoods Initiative (DLI): Policymaker and Practitioner Information Session
Hosted by: Displaced Livelihood Initiative
The Displaced Livelihoods Initiative (DLI), a new research fund supported by the IKEA Foundation, will host an information session for policymakers and practitioners on May 10, 2023 at 9:00 am ET. This webinar is intended for policymakers and practitioners who are interested in learning about DLI’s thematic scope and gaining an overview of the opportunities for collaboration between researchers and organizations involved in policy and practice.
Displacement is at an all-time high and is projected to climb in the coming decades, making it more necessary than ever to identify impactful and cost-effective programs and policies that enable refugees and others forced to flee to achieve self-reliance and rebuild their lives. Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) and J-PAL recently launched DLI, to respond to this need.
DLI will generate new evidence on how to best ensure sustainable livelihoods and achieve self-reliance for displaced populations and host communities. Ultimately, research supported by the initiative aims to support the design of better policies and programs for displaced populations to rebuild their lives.
