23 Apr Improved global agreement for refugees
On 17 December 2018, the UN General Assembly agreed on a new deal for refugees.
Known as the Global Refugee Agreement, it seeks to improve the international response to refugee situations, both new and existing.
Among other things, the agreement aims to ensure that refugees and their hosts, who are often in the poorest parts of the world, receive the support they need.
Another goal is to help refugees become more independent so that they can contribute more to their own future.
