The Group of Friends strengthens awareness on the protection and assistance needs of disaster displaced persons. It is an open-ended group and consists of States and regional organizations. The European Union and Morocco co-chair the Group of Friends.

The co-chairs circulate invitations to briefings and meetings to all interested Member States of the UN and to relevant regional organizations (through their representations in Geneva and New York) which:

  • Have an interest in the issue of displacement in the context of disasters and the adverse effects of climate change
  • Are supportive of the objective of the Platform on Disaster Displacement
  • Would like to follow the Platform’s work and engage with the PDD on relevant activities
  • Would like to make comments, proposals, and contributions to the work of the Platform
  • And/or are a member of the PDD Steering Group.

All Member States of the UN and all relevant regional organizations are invited to all meetings and can choose which to attend and where.
