The proposed theme for the ADS 2019, aligns with the overarching priority theme of the African Union for 2019, entitled: Year of Refugees, Returnees and Internally Displaced Persons: Towards Durable Solutions to Forced Displacement in Africa. This year, the African Union is commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the adoption of the 1969 Organization of African Unity Convention Governing the Specific Aspects of Refugee Problems in Africa (OAU Refugee Convention) and the 10th Anniversary of the adoption of the 2009 AU Convention for the Protection of Internally Displaced Persons in Africa (the Kampala Convention). In this regard, it calls on the United Nations and its partners to support Africa, through global advocacy and actions, to find durable solutions to forced displacement in Africa, and to assist the leadership of African Member States in ensuring ratification and adoption of the pivotal African and Global instruments, namely – the Kampala Convention on IDPs, the OAU Convention on Refugees, and the Global Compact on Refugees, and on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.

The AU theme also coincides with the growing recognition of the humanitarian and development nexus, and the need for greater collaboration and coherent support by all stakeholders, particularly on the need for greater financing across the transitional period from humanitarian to development action. Addressing this nexus will help towards finding solutions to forced displacement in Africa, while also promoting conflict prevention and resilience to natural disasters, in line with the 2030 Agenda and Agenda 2063.

The ADS 2019 will therefore provide an advocacy platform to discuss durable solutions to forced displacement of refugees and IDPs in Africa, and the need for their protection and support.
