The availability of safe affordable housing accommodations for refugees seeking protection from violence and persecution is one of the largest challenges facing the international humanitarian community today.

The Global Refugee Accommodation Working Group works to grow cross-sector global coordination, communication, and collaboration to seize and innovate opportunities to address refugee accommodation, shelter and housing (ASH) challenges.

The Global Refugee Accommodation Working Group is co-chaired the Government of Ireland and Church World Service, and will bring together refuge and resettlement States, United Nations agencies, academia, and non-government organizations and nonprofits to develop new solutions to ensure access to dignified and safe living situations for people on the move worldwide.
