The National-level Committee for Resettlement and Closures of IDP Camps held its first coordination meeting in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday to implement its strategies.
Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Dr Win Myat Aye, in his capacity as the committee’s chairman, explained the tasks of committee which was formed on 25 February 2020.
The committee will work for closures of 128 IDP camps in Kachin, Shan, Kayin and Rakhine states due to armed conflicts, report its activities to the Union government every six months and to the National Reconciliation and Peace Centre.
Strategies for the committee were developed with the help of Swiss Professor Mr Walter Kaelin to meet international norms. A set of guidelines was also designed to support the resettlement process.
Officials from the governments of Kachin, Rakhine, Shan and Kayin states presented their implementation plans.
The meeting discussed data collection, preparing reports, budget requirements, media relations, information to foreign missions, UN agencies and international communities, and the sub-national committees agreed to submit their quarterly reports to the national committee.
The Union Minister emphasized the needs to follow instructions of the Ministry of Health and Sports in measures related to prevention, control and treatments of Covid-19.—MNA (Translated by Aung Khin)
