ICVA 2019 Annual Conference: Translating Commitments to Actions
26 March 2019, Geneva
Following the various commitments made through the World Humanitarian Summit, the Grand Bargain, the New York Declararitions and the Global Compacts on Refugees and Migration, the UN Reform process, the Localisation disucssions- it is now time to take a hard look at how and what we, as an NGO community, should be doing to translate these commitments into action while putting people at the centre.
Our conference will provide a space for ICVA Members and other stakeholders to :
- Analyse and explain organisational and country-specific experiences of what change is required
- Explore what form of support is required to NGOs to spur these changes to translate commitments into actions, and for those who have made changes, what they would require to further improve practice
Facilitate NGOs to have increased opportunities to contribute and influence policy changes and practices at global level.
The Concept Note for the Annual Conference has more information about the approach of the conference.
ICVA’s briefing papers on the New Way of Working, the path towards a Global Compact on Refugees, the Grand Bargain, the World Bank, on Localization and Civil Society Space Scoping study and ALNAP’s Transforming Change report will be useful pre-reading materials in advance of the conference.
