Introduction

As humanitarian actors are working towards reducing their environmental impact, it’s important to understand what tools are being developed and what initiatives are under way that can serve as a model for other organisations. ICVA and PHAP on 3 February held a webinar on Practical Tools and Initiatives for reducing Environmental Impact in Humanitarian Action. The webinar focused on practical tools and initiatives undertaken by organisations to reduce their environmental impact in humanitarian action.

This webinar shared lessons learned and responses to some of the following questions:

  • How can we incorporate more environment-friendly practices into our programming?
  • What are some of the nature-based solutions/do no harm practices being used by organisations in their programming?
  • What are the tools for NGOs to measure their environment impact?

In our previous webinar, we gave an overview of how organisations can develop and implement environmental policies and strategies in line with Commitment 2 of the Climate Charter, and looked at challenges and opportunities, including some of the donor requirements and standards being put in place.
