On 2 October 2019 Development Initiatives hosted a webinar consisting of presentations followed by a facilitated discussion, with an opportunity for participants to address questions directly to speakers. The live event was recorded and can be viewed below, and the presentations can be downloaded as slides.
The webinar focused on contexts where humanitarian, development and peace actors often work alongside each other: protracted crises. The event provided actors working in these settings with the latest data and analysis on financing responses. The event also launched the 2019 Global Humanitarian Assistance Report: a leading resource for understanding humanitarian financing and related aid flows.
This webinar was the second in the series – ‘Building coherence between crisis, development and peace actors’, a series aiming to bring together actors from all sides to lay the foundations for future talks on building greater coherence. You can watch the first webinar in the series here.
Facilitator Harpinder Collacott, Executive Director, Development Initiatives
