Humanitarian Networks & Partnerships Week (CICG, Geneva, 4-8 February)

During the Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Week (HNPW), CERAH promoted the Humanitarian encyclopedia project at two events and had a stand throughout the week to promote the initiative.

Both events were attended by participants from various sectors, including military and civil-defence actors. During discussions, the divergent views on concepts were highlighted and the impact this could have on the effectiveness of operations was clearly illustrated. It showed that although well known buzzwords are used by all, yet their underlying definition or meaning are unclear to users.
