2020 REGIONAL HUMANITARIAN PARTNERSHIP EVENTS

30 October 2020

Join ADRRN and partners for a 3 months online journey comprised of a series of consultations and webinars that will bring key humanitarian and development actors for a focused discussion to share their perspectives on how disaster risk reduction, emergency preparedness and humanitarian response should transform in this changing context, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


November 2020

REGIONAL/COUNTRY CONSULTATIONS/MEETINGS

Future of Humanitarian Response in Asia and the Pacific

This regional consultation meeting aims to bring together key humanitarian actors - local and national NGOs, INGOs, NGO networks, Red Cross and Crescent Movement, UN agencies, academics and beyond, for a focused discussion to share their perspectives on how emergency preparedness and humanitarian response would be delivered in the changing context and in this connection, what it would mean to the key actors in Asia and the Pacific region. This topic is not new, but the strike of COVID-19 has probably made it more relevant to all and resulted in new implications for humanitarian actors as we embrace more shared vulnerabilities and consequently more shared responsibility.
