Would you like to know more about how NRC works with UNHCR and how this partnership’s potential can be leveraged even further in the field? How could your country or regional office implement projects more efficiently with UNHCR assistance and funding?

On 22 February, the first of a series of interactive live sessions was organized for NRC staff worldwide in collaboration with PHAP’s Geneva Humanitarian Connector.

We heard from Fatima Sherif, Head of the Implementing Partnership Management Service at UNHCR, and Cecilia Roselli, Institutional Partnership Adviser at NRC. Carlo Gherardi from NRC Country Office in Jordan also shared his own experience working with UNHCR and highlighted the main challenges they have faced when implementing the partnership in an operational environment.

The event provided an opportunity to learn both directly from this partner organization and from the experiences of NRC colleagues working in HQ and other locations. Each presentation was followed by an opportunity to ask questions to the speakers encouraging all participants to actively engage.
