Comments to the European Commission’s non-paper on forced displacement and development

7 March 2016
DG ECHO will soon publish a communication on a new approach to forced displacement which better integrates humanitarian and development strategies.
In reaction to a non-paper by DG ECHO on this issue, PLATFORMA highlighted that:
  • The engagement of local governments (LGs) throughout the project cycle is essential
  • Support to decentralisation is a precondition for stronger communication with LGs
  • The potential of decentralised cooperation should be recognised
  • Integrating development actors to address forced displacement is a welcomed approach
  • Local government-led service delivery benefits host communities and displaced people
