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.
Co-sponsored by Plan International and World Vision International.
This humanitarian briefing event will present new research findings from World Vision on how the Venezuelan crisis is affecting children's rights and protection, alongside regional analysis presented by Plan International on the specific impact for girls. Most importantly, this event will provide a platform to hear directly from Venezuelan adolescent girls and young women themselves - their experiences, how the crisis and COVID-19 pandemic has impacted their lives, and what actions they recommend to leaders for change.
