ICVA's 2021 Virtual Annual Conference 

(see original ICVA event page here)

Each year, ICVA holds an Annual Conference, which provides an important opportunity for members to connect and discuss issues relevant to the humanitarian sector, as informed by ICVA’s membership base. On 25 and 26 May 2021 ICVA will host its second virtual annual conference on the theme: Climate, environment and humanitarian action: How can NGOs mitigate and adapt? During ICVA’s 2030 strategy consultations, members and partners highlighted the importance of the intersection between climate and environment change and humanitarian action. The changes taking place are not only threatening humanity and our environment as we know it, but it is also faster and more radical than expected.
