Museum for Communication, The Hague, Netherlands - 1 DayFriday
With over 65 million forcibly displaced people, of which almost 21.3 million refugees, the migrant crisis to date is one of the most urgent and compelling realities affecting the world. Conflict continues in several countries in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa, which makes it unclear when refugees will be able to return safely to their homes, with some refugees already having been in their host countries for over 10 years. Most refugees have little to no opportunities to enter the economic system due to a lack of available financial services and thus, despite protracted displacement and residence in host countries, are unable to integrate into the economy and society. To bring this to light and work on solutions, NpM, Platform for Inclusive Finance, wants to improve capacity for providing financial services to refugees and decided to do its annual conference on the topic of ‘Finance for Refugees’.
Objectives The main objective of the conference is to bring together the donor and the investor community and provide them a platform to discuss this critical issue and work towards sustainable solutions for refugees.
Guests at the conference will be (Dutch) investors, international donor organizations, governmental organizations, Civil Society Organizations, development banks, local financial service providers, and knowledge institutes.
