DFID has many programmes which address the needs of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), all of which are subject to regular review of their effectiveness. At a global level, the UK is supportive of the idea of a UN High Level Panel on IDPs to assess the effectiveness of the current response to internal displacement and galvanise further political and operational action. We are discussing this closely with other interested States and UN agencies.
