Future ready is a report from the Secretariat of the Asia Dialogue on Forced Migration.
It was released through the Centre for Policy Development’s Indo-Pacific Program on the 20th anniversary of the Bali Process.
It proposes an eight-point reform plan so the Bali Process can support a regional response to forced migration that is durable, dignified and effective.
The Bali Process on People Smuggling, Trafficking in Persons and Related Transnational Crime was established in 2002. The 45-member body is the only forum that brings origin, transit and destination countries for forced migration together with UN bodies and NGOs.
The Bali Process is co-chaired by Australia and Indonesia.
Future Ready, from the secretariat of the Asia Dialogue for Forced Migration, contains an eight-point plan to revitalise the Bali Process to ensure it supports a durable, dignified and effective response to forced migration in the Indo-Pacific region.
Future ready proposes an eight-point plan to reform the Bali Process so that it better supports a regional response to forced migration that is durable, dignified and effective.
Its recommendations include:
If the Future ready reforms were implemented the Bali Proicess would facilitate more effective responses to displacement.
It would be able to support countries affected by large maritime displacements to deliver a more effective regional response.
Countries would have access to the latest information and scenario planning because of investments in planning and preparedness.
Communications between countries would be easier thanks to a regularly maintained register.
The consultation mechanism will let Australia and Indonesia coordinate regional responses to emergencies.
Countries will have shared procedures for detection, search and rescue, providing shelter and support, as well as screening and referral systems to identify people who need protection.
People will receive emergency assistance, consistent with relevant protocols.
Countries will build stronger relationships between operational agencies in the Bali Process Working Groups.
