The IASC and the global humanitarian coordination architecture: How can NGOs engage?

What is the current global humanitarian architecture? What is the Inter Agency Standing Committee (IASC)? And how can NGOs engage in the various IASC coordination mechanisms? Join us on 31 May for the first online session, in partnership with PHAP, for ICVA’s new learning stream on humanitarian coordination.

Participants will be provided with an overview of IASC humanitarian coordination mechanisms at the country, regional, and global levels, followed by an opportunity for questions and answers.

The event will explore the current coordination structures, and the way for NGOs to engage in such structures, with a special focus on how the country-level and global-level mechanisms coordinate and feed into each other.

Topic Three: NGO fora and consortia – from local to global

Aiming collectively for strengthened humanitarian coordination and response from local to global level, we are witnessing the increasing relevance of NGO fora and consortia at national, regional and global levels. Understanding how these fora and consortia function, and how NGOs can engage in these structures, will be the topic of the third session of the learning stream on humanitarian coordination, jointly organized by ICVA and PHAP.

Topic Two: The humanitarian coordination architecture at country and regional levels

What are the humanitarian coordination mechanisms at country and regional levels? In the second online session of the learning stream on humanitarian coordination, jointly organized by ICVA and PHAP, guest experts will explore the coordination mechanisms available at country level and the existing regional structures.
