The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted humanitarian responses in numerous settings. It is crucial for humanitarian organizations to ensure and maintain humanitarian access and relationships with their counterparts to deliver aid and protection to vulnerable populations. At the Geneva Peace Week (GPW) 2020, the Centre of Competence on Humanitarian Negotiation (CCHN) together with the French and the German Permanent Missions to the UN are inviting you to join a live session to share collective efforts, knowledge, ideas, and best practices on humanitarian responses to the COVID-19.
During this online panel discussion, we have interactive exchanges with the panelists about public health, security, protection, supply, and budget affected by the current pandemic situation. This live session aims to highlight perspectives of coordination both at headquarters and field levels, to continuously carry on with their work, complying with their organizational mandates and with COVID-19 measures. We seek for their opinions and experiences on the implementations of collective efforts, innovative good practices, and humanitarian responses which humanitarian organizations have developed. One of the good practices to maintain access and support the efforts of humanitarian organizations amidst the pandemic which will be discussed is humanitarian negotiation. Content from the event will be gathered and analyzed in a written report.
Instead of a week of face-to-face events in Bangkok in the past years which brought together over 100 members and partners of ICVA and the Asia Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN) focused on strengthening humanitarian practice in the region, this year’s Events will be a virtual journey of 3 months and hopefully be joined by more members and partners.
The Events will be comprised of a series of consultations and webinars for key humanitarian and development actors to share their perspectives on how disaster risk reduction, emergency preparedness and humanitarian response should transform in the changing context, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is co-organized by Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN), International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA), UN Office for Humanitarian Affairs (UN-OCHA), and Community World Service Asia (CWSA), and supported by members and partners.
When: 18 November 2020 15:00-17:00 Bangkok time.
