A task force is to be set up to see how Wales will respond to the refugee crisis in Europe.
At a summit this morning, charities and government ministers said Wales would take its share of people - although no firm figures were given.
The summit took place in Cardiff Bay to discuss how Wales can play its full part in resettling refugees in Wales and develop the most effective response to the crisis.
First Minister Carwyn Jones says an assessment is needed of the challenges it will bring - but council leaders say cost is a concern.
Oxfam Cymru have urged Welsh local authorities to ensure that their pledge to help refugees is delivered, for fears that those living in camps in Lebanon and Jordan 'will not survive another winter'.
The comments come ahead of today's summit to discuss the refugee crisis, which will be hosted by the First Minister.
In recent weeks, hundreds of thousands of people have fled war-torn Syria, many risking their lives to enter Europe.
First Minister Carwyn Jones is holding a summit today to discuss how Wales can play a part in resettling refugees.
Over recent weeks, hundreds of thousands of people have fled war-torn Syria - many risking their lives on dangerous journeys to enter Europe.
Hundreds of people gathered in Cardiff at the weekend to show their support to refugees.
Many there used the opportunity to call for the UK Government to do more following the announcement they will take 20,000 refugees before 2020.
Carwyn Jones will be joined by a number of charities including the Welsh Refugee Council and British Red Cross. The Government says the discussion will be about developing the most effective response to the crisis.
The Welsh Government has welcomed the UK Government's commitment to help 20,000 Syrian refugees and is 'ready to respond.' But a spokesperson says there are questions over the timetable of the new assistance programme being offered to Syrian refugees and how it will be funded.
The spokesperson said:
The Welsh Government says a summit next week will be a 'starting point for discussion' on Wales' response to the refugee crisis. First Minister Carwyn Jones will host the meeting which is expected to bring together those who work with refugees and the local councils which will be responsible for looking after asylum seekers.
The spokesperson added that the Welsh Government funds help for refugees carried out by the Welsh Refugee Council, the British Red Cross and the Trinity Project.
First Minister Carwyn Jones says he will hold a summit on Wales' response to the refugee crisis affecting Europe.
Last week Carwyn Jones said Wales' share of 10,000 refugees in the UK would be between 500 and 600 families.
A Welsh Liberal Democrat peer has urged councils to make buildings, empty shops and unoccupied houses available for refugees from Syria.
Lord Roberts of Llandudno said: “They could be used to offer short-term shelter. I am not talking about council houses, but empty homes that are without an occupier."
