2014 Roundtable on Solutions
The Copenhagen Roundtable was held at Eigtveds Pakhus in Copenhagen on 2-3 April 2014 and built on the recommendations from previous discussions on the subject of displacement hosted by the Netherlands, Japan, and Denmark. The Roundtable established a commitment from a wide number of actors involved in humanitarian response, recovery, and long-term development by bringing together UN agencies, NGOs, donor nations, the private sector, academic institutions, and affected states to discuss and agree on a coherent way forward to address protracted displacement.
The Roundtable had 3 overarching objectives:
- Formal endorsement of a Mission Statement and Governance Structure for the Solutions Alliance.
- Agreement on the desirability of a global advocacy strategy for the Solutions Alliance and core advocacy messages underpinning the Alliance.
- Agreement on next steps to establish National Groups to roll out the Solutions Alliance in a small number of selected displacement situations.
