Learning Stream on Humanitarian Coordination: The New Way of Working

Register now

In his report on the World Humanitarian Summit “One Humanity: Shared Responsibility”, the former UN Secretary-General proposed an Agenda for Humanity that would help to meet people’s immediate humanitarian needs - while at the same time reducing risk and vulnerability. This “new way of working”, adopted by eight UN humanitarian and development entities, aspires to work towards collective outcomes across the humanitarian and development community. Wherever possible, those efforts should reinforce and strengthen the capacities that already exist at national and local levels, whilst ultimately working towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Join us on 5 October for the fifth online session of PHAP’s and ICVA’s learning stream on humanitarian coordination, which will focus on the New Way of Working, unpacking overall goals, what changes are needed across the sector, how these changes impact NGOs, and how can NGOs influence this process.

Learning objectives

  • Knowledge of the New Way of Working, including its aspirations, the actors invovled, and its potential implications across the humanitarian sector
  • Awareness of the New Way of Working's impact on NGO operations and policy priorities
  • Familiarity with engagement opportunities for NGO to contribute to and influence the New Way of Working
  • Familiarity with further sources of information on the New Way of Working
