How can humanitarian civil society better navigate a complex world?

The importance of NGO engagement with host governments


Date: Tuesday, 28 March 2017

Venue: CICG, Geneva, Switzerland

ICVA’s 2017 Annual Conference will serve as the launch of a two-year project, supporting NGOs undertaking humanitarian action to better navigate a complex world. Over the coming two years, we will specifically explore how more effective NGO engagement with host governments can strengthen the ability to operate at field levels.

The Annual Conference will be followed by a members’ only session on Wednesday 29 March, which will discuss ICVA’s 2018 – 2021 Strategic Plan.
