Webinar

Description

The webinar is part of the preparatory and consultative process, building momentum towards the European Humanitarian Forum on 24-26 January 2022 in Brussels.  The European Humanitarian Forum will aim at serving as a new and innovative platform for strategic, high-level and open debate between EU political decision-makers and the wider international humanitarian community.

The Forum will offer a European perspective on humanitarian challenges for an international audience and contribute to identifying solutions and actions to address the unprecedented level of needs and constraints faced by humanitarian operators and beneficiaries.  The Forum will take the Communication on the EU’s humanitarian action: new challenges, same principles of 10 March 2021 and the subsequent Council Conclusions of 21 May on the Commission's Communication as a starting point. Fostered by, inter alia, the 5Th French national humanitarian conference of 17 December 2020, it will also build on the Call for humanitarian action, co-launched by France and Germany on 26 September 2019. It will shed light on ongoing efforts by a broad range of actors – including local leaders and affected populations. 

The webinar aims at identifying gaps and possible solutions to reinforce multi-hazard/multi-risk disaster preparedness approaches to scale up anticipatory action in humanitarian contexts through exploring case studies, a virtual roundtable and interactive engagement from participants.

DG ECHO, French Presidency, the Anticipation Hub and VOICE.
