The Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Week (HNPW), organized by the UN OCHA takes place annually in Geneva. It gathers stakeholders involved in humanitarian work, for example, governments, humanitarian and development organisations at all levels including UN, NGO networks, technical experts, consultancy firms, think-tanks, academic researchers, etc. For 2020, there are 2,600 participants.
CERAH has actively participated in the HNPW since 2018, with discussion sessions and exhibition stands. On the opening day of HNPW, our briefing session focused on the role of education in an evolving humanitarian space, was a success and generated a rich Q&A session.
On Wednesday 5 February, CERAH, in collaboration with ACAPS and InZone will have a session focusing learning and partnering for better local humanitarian outcomes.
‘Learning and partnering for better local humanitarian outcomes -Enhanced capacity of stakeholders and better understanding of local context to realise localization with a bottom-up approach‘.
Room 15, CICG, 14:00 – 15:30, 5 February, Inter-Network Day with focus on ‘localisation’, HNPW 2020.
Our exhibition stand displaying course materials and information on the Humanitarian Encyclopedia is receiving a wide variety of visitors. One visitor said she had struggled to find concept definitions to increase the understanding of actors from the private sector and she would refer to our project in the future.
