The Global Compact on Refugees (Article 23-25) stipulates that each Support Platform not only would benefit from the leadership and engagement of a group of States to mobilize contributions and support but that other relevant stakeholders would be invited to engage as appropriate.
It is in this context, that the Support Platform for the SSAR welcomes the engagement and contribution of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), and Refugee-Led Organizations (RLOs). In working towards the pursuit of durable solutions for displaced Afghans, these groups play a crucial role as first responders, contributors to protection programming, advocacy and research. They are key stakeholders and partners in driving forward the Solutions Strategy for Afghan Refugees and the objectives of the SSAR Support Platform.
