Urban Refuge: How Cities Are Building Inclusive Communities

This report highlights the efforts of 23 city governments worldwide that are supporting displaced populations. It serves as a call to action for private sector and international humanitarian actors to build on these efforts as urban displacement increases. It includes case studies from cities at the forefront of displacement stemming from the largest current crises, including Syria, northeast Nigeria, and equatorial Africa; cities at the forefront of resettlement and integration, such as within the U.S, Europe, and South America; and cities recovering from recent conflict, such as in Iraq and Afghanistan. It provides recommendations for greater collaboration between city governments, the private sector, and the international humanitarian community in order to provide safe, sustainable, and inclusive communities of urban refuge.
