The first regional consultation of NGOs and civil society on displacement in South America took place in Rio de Janeiro (RJ) last week (21 and 22).

Representatives the private sector shared their experiences and reiterated the need for companies to provide more employment opportunities for refugees.

"Three weeks the Global Refugee Forum, these consultations recognize that civil society in Latin America continues to do a great job and that it has much to contribute to the protection of refugees in the region and in the world," said Renata Dubini, director of UNHCR for the Americas.

Latin America receives more than 12 million displaced people, including about 4.6 million Venezuelan refugees and migrants who have left their country in search of protection or better living conditions, with no prospect of returning in the short or medium term.

In this sense, civil society plays a key role in ensuring that refugees have access to humanitarian aid, protection systems and effective solutions.

“Nobody can face these challenges in isolation. The tradition and spirit of solidarity in the Americas continues to be an example worldwide. We must continue building together to advance the protection of refugees, ”said Dubini.

"We are fortunate to work with a civil society very committed to refugees and the Rio meeting is just a first step in ensuring that the voice of civil society continues to be heard aloud."

UNHCR's representative in Brazil, Jose Egas, stressed the importance of the different dialogues between the agency's partners in the public and private sectors.

“The consultation carried out allowed the exchange of practices and knowledge between NGOs and the private sector on the integration of refugees in society, presenting actions of training and employability, as well as actions of peaceful coexistence and effective guarantee of the rights of the population that seeks international protection. ", said.

“It is necessary that, increasingly, the private sector and civil society organizations act in an integrated and articulated way to promote effective responses to the challenges already posed, and this reality is ongoing in Brazil and in the other countries of the region”, stated.

UNHCR relies on its partners to carry out many projects, including the distribution of humanitarian aid, protection, logistics, shelter, health, water, sanitation, nutrition and educational projects.

Annual consultations with NGOs incorporate the participation of national and international organizations around the world. These consultations provide an important forum for civil society to create networks, establish dialogues and exchange information with UNHCR.
