Each year, ICVA holds an Annual Conference, which provides an important opportunity for members to connect and discuss issues relevant to the humanitarian sector, as informed by ICVA’s membership base.

On 17 March 2023,  ICVA will host its annual conference on the theme: The right time and the right place: Improving access to humanitarian quality funding. The day before, 16 March 2023, will be the ICVA Membership Day.


Main objectives of the conference include:

  • Increase awareness and establish common understanding of the key challenges in humanitarian finance, including the need to look for solutions across the system, not only in increasing funding
  • Examine the options for the future of the Grand Bargain and solidify NGO support for a preferred way forward
  • Discuss the state of the localization, with a particular focus on further joint efforts to ensure effective resources and support are accessible by local partners
  • Support peer exchange on NGO efforts to embed climate action and financing opportunities into humanitarian response.
