ICVA Annual Conference 2020

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

At ICVA’s 2019 Annual Conference “Translating Commitment to Action” ICVA members and partners highlighted the importance to dive deeper into the risk to principled humanitarian action and in turn the risks taken by NGOs to deliver effective and efficient humanitarian assistance to those most in need.

ICVA’s Annual Conference will bring together members, States, donors, UN agencies, experts and other stakeholders to share their experiences, lessons learned, challenges and ways forward around these issues. The Annual Conference will be held on 18 March and will be preceded by a Members’ Day on 17 March and followed by a Partners’ Day on 19 March which will provide an opportunity for NGOs to further engage and interact around the theme.


For more information please see the Concept Note and the Draft Agenda.



Registration is now closed.  For further information please contact secretariat@icvanetwork.org
