Five panelists from frontline NGOs as well as NGO networks in Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Japan, and the Pacific region will be exchanging their experiences with all the participants around these 4 key questions:


  • What does this new normal mean in their own organization context?  (if possible) Does this new normal change our perspectives on implementing agreed upon actions within SFDRR and AADMER?
  • What are the specific challenges in this new normal in humanitarian work?
  • What is the role of CSOs and what specific adjustments do CSOs need to make?
  • What recommendations do you have for colleagues in the region?
