Information

Digital technologies provide new opportunities for development and humanitarian organizations in their support for displaced people. Development agencies in the Group of 20 (G20) countries that fund and support humanitarian response can improve digital humanitarian responses by addressing technology access issues in displaced communities. They can work with United Nations (UN) agencies to develop digital tools that meet displaced peoples’ specific needs and implement comprehensive privacy and data protection policies in the programs they support. This policy brief draws on policy-relevant empirical findings on displaced peoples’ digital behavior and inclusion to develop recommendations for the G20 Development Working Group.
