Alleviating Poverty (online lecture)

Alleviating Poverty (online lecture)

Location: Online
15 Apr 2021

The global increase of protracted crises and displacement challenge social and economic empowerment, both for displaced and host populations. Adopting new approaches, with the potential to advance the humanitarian-development nexus, is called for. Developed in Bangladesh, the Graduation Approach is receiving increased attention as a method that effectively fosters long-term inclusion and self-reliance. Can this model be translated to meet the challenges in Jordan, host to a large number of Syrian refugees and confronted with a high poverty rate?

For this exciting lecture, we have the honor of presenting DRC Secretary General, Ms. Charlotte Slente; Economic Recovery Manager, Mr. Rahul Mitra; Chief of Party, RYSE Consortium, Ms. Rima Alqaisi; and Global Advisor, Economic Recovery, Ms. Solenne Delga.

The lecture is co-organized in collaboration with Novo Nordisk Foundation department Social & Humanitarian and the Danish Refugee Council.
