This event will provide humanitarian and development practitioners, government stakeholders, private sector representatives and actors as well as donor agencies the opportunity to come together around the shared objective of enhancing inclusive private sector development and engagement in forced displacement settings. Through presentations, panel discussions and in-depth breakout sessions, this 3-day event will share lessons learned from different countries and situations.

The objective is to provide a platform for technical discussions on practical experiences in formal and informal business development, financial inclusion, market-based and systemic approaches, cooperative and social solidarity solutions and private sector engagement to improve the access of forcibly displaced people and host communities to decent livelihoods and employment. The audience for this event include:

  • Practitioners working on private sector solutions in forced displacement settings, including decision-makers and technical staff from organizations and business entities working on enterprise development, access to finance, cooperative development and market-based livelihoods approaches.
  • Private sector partners engaged in forced displacement settings, for example, value chain actors, providers of finance and business development services, representatives of cooperatives, workers’ or business associations and informal economy actors.
  • Government agencies and actors dealing with enterprise development, access to finance, cooperative development and market-based livelihoods approaches for refugees and host communities.
  • Donor agencies supporting humanitarian-development nexus operations and interested in the latest practices in private sector development in these contexts.
