This week, leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean will meet in Brazil to discuss solutions to the global refugee crisis.The aim of the two-day gathering is to strategize new ways to assist the millions of displaced people in the region and around the world. Nevertheless, at the moment, some countries are doing more than others to assist refugees. Of the world's refugee population, 84 percent are currently hosted by developing countries. That is why the regional meeting that Brazil is hosting next week is so important.Three decades later, regional governments renewed this pledge by adopting the Brazil Declaration and Plan of Action, which aims to end statelessness in the region by 2024, among other goals.Brazil's goal is to channel the region's collective experience into a more equitable, global solution.
