Our 2021 Annual Report mirrors the strength that ICVA and its members gain from our solidarity and common values. Explore our learnings from a year of coordination, cooperation and collaboration in humanitarian action.
This learning stream provides a platform for the broader humanitarian community to better understand how we can reduce our impact of climate change by accelerating action and increasing environmental sustainability. The series focuses on practical ways of applying the Climate and Environment Charter for Humanitarian Organisations and sharing lessons learned on how the commitments can be translated into practice.
Topics covered in this webinar series include:
The International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA) was established in 1962 as the successor organisation of the Conference on Non-Governmental Organizations interested in Migration, the Standing Conference for Voluntary Agencies Working for Refugees, and the International Committee for World Refugee Year. This year, ICVA will be commemorating its 60th anniversary on Wednesday, 18 May 2022 on-line and in Geneva and on separate dates in the regions.
For 60 years we have remained committed to our mission of making humanitarian action more principled and effective by working collectively and independently to influence policy and practice. The External Impact Study concludes that ICVA has had significant impact whether viewing the work through the lens of the Focus Areas, the defined ways of working, the documented added value of ICVA or the collective achievements of the ICVA members, the ICVA board and the ICVA Secretariat team. The commemoration will be an opportunity to reflect on our past, present and future as well as re-enforce the ICVA 2030 ambitions.
