Concerted Plan of Action (1989-1994): identify permanent solutions to the problems of uprootedness within the framework of national development and as an integral part of efforts towards peace and democracy; respect the right of refugees to return voluntarily to their countries to resume normal life through promotion of voluntary repatriation as the ideal solution; where voluntary repatriation is not realistic, help refugees to play a wider and more positive role in countries of asylum by encouraging interaction with local communities; improve the situation of displaced persons so they may return to normal, productive life in their places of origin; counteract negative impact that uprooted populations may have on employment, social services, economic conditions and the environment in receiving countries by ensuring, inter alia, that programme also benefit the local population.
