International Development Committee
Response from the Secretary of State published
The International Development Committee examined the challenges of displacement in Central and East Africa and regional responses to support refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) and the food crises affecting Central and East Africa.
In a letter to the Secretary of State, Priti Patel MP, drawing attention to the evidence the Committee has received on this important topic, the Committee says that the displacement and food crisis in Central and East Africa must rise up the international public and political agenda to avoid scenes similar to those of the 2011 famine in Somalia which killed over a quarter of a million people.
Evidence given by Moulid Hajale, Humanitarian journalist; Lucy Hovil, Senior Researcher, International Refugee Rights Initiative, and Sanjayan Srikanthan, Vice President Europe, Deputy Executive Director, International Rescue Committee UK (at 10.10am); Sarah Pickwick, Senior Conflict Adviser, World Vision UK, and Juliet Parker, Director of Operations, Action Against Hunger UK (at 10.50am).
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
