Enabling investors and companies to scale sustainable refugee solutions.
Climate Change and Geopolitical Conflict could displace 1 billion people by 2050
The global refugee crisis will intensify as ecological disasters drive massive global forced displacement. With 77% of refugees caught up in situations of long-term displacement, sustainable solutions are needed that address refugees’ pathways to self-reliance at scale.
Refugees are often overlooked and underutilized
Recognizing this, companies have taken action through hiring, entrepreneur support, and education & skills development, among other economic integration activities. The private sector is uniquely capable of scaling sustainable refugee solutions that enable refugee self-reliance.
Yet, these solutions have not been tracked by data providers nor rewarded by the investment community. Until now. RII seeks to bring transparency to private sector refugee impact through three solutions.
