The objective of the session was to improve the understanding of humanitarian actors/NGOs on what climate financing is, what it means in humanitarian contexts, including implications for humanitarian action.
The session examined some key questions:
What is Climate Finance?
What is the gap in climate financing in humanitarian contexts?
What are the implications for humanitarian action in such contexts?
What is the role of humanitarian actors, especially NGOs working in conflict and fragile contexts?
