Upcoming webinar in the ICVA and PHAP Learning Stream on Risk Management in Practice 

The ICVA and PHAP Learning Stream on Risk Management in Practice is back this 10 June with a focus on risk management and funding partnerships

On 10 June, join International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA) and PHAP for a webinar, part of the Learning Series on Risk Management in Practice, where we will examine the role of risk management in good funding partnerships as NGOs engage with external funders.

Risk management practices are playing an increasingly important role in partner selection and engagement when NGOs receive funding from UN agencies or government donors. For funders of humanitarian programming of NGOs, risk management is playing an increasing role in both the decision to offer funding and the terms and conditions of partnership once a grant is secured. Funding from UN agencies for NGO partners now includes an assessment of risk management practices in partner selection. Most also use a risk rating system with partners to determine funding limits and levels of required oversight. 

As with our other webinars in the series, we will be joined by a panel of experts representing both NGO and funder perspectives, followed by a live discussion with participants.

This event is the fifth session of the PHAP and ICVA Learning Stream on Risk Management in Practice. This session follows the first four webinars in this learning series which explored the impact of bank de-risking; security risk management and duty of care during COVID-19; balancing risk appetite and risk tolerance; and the role of organizational culture.

This webinar is free to attend.
