Low- and middle-income countries host 88 percent of the world’s refugees. The strain of refugee flows can threaten development and stability in these countries, with regional and global consequences. But if the situation is well managed, refugees can offer a net benefit to their host communities.

A compact agreement is an innovative model for bringing together donors, development and humanitarian agencies, the private sector, and civil society under host-country leadership to achieve sustainable outcomes for refugees and host communities.

This brief offers three key principles and 10 recommendations for policymakers to build effective compacts for refugee-hosting nations.
