Humanitarian Networks & Partnership Week, 4-8 February 2019, International Conference Centre in Geneva (CICG), Geneva, Switzerland (UNOG, OCHA)

GIWEH represented the non-profit sector during the 5th Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Week (HNPW) in Geneva on 4-8 of February. Every year, members of the Leading Edge Programme’s participating networks and partnerships meet in Geneva for the HNPW, the largest event of its kind which in 2018 brought together 1,500 experts in crisis preparedness and response. More than 25 Networks (UNDAC, INSARAG, etc.) and Partnerships held their annual meetings during the week.  This event brought together experts in crisis preparedness and response from a diversity of organizations (including Member States, UN agencies, NGOs, civil protection, the private sector or academia) and country representatives in a common space where discussions focused on identifying solutions to humanitarian and environmental challenges, as well as sustainability, innovations and climate change.


During the five days, participants take part in panel discussions and discuss practical topics that relate to the humanitarian challenges and environment, as well as humanitarian action issues linked to the SDGs.
