How can we ensure no one is left behind in emergencies and how can we improve accountability to the people we are trying to reach through our responses?
The Humanitarian Coalition recently completed a review of the projects funded to its members for their response after the Nepal earthquake.
While focussing on the Core Humanitarian Standard as the guiding framework, the review looked at inclusion and accountability as separate concepts linked by a common desired outcome: to ensure that affected people, the most vulnerable in particular, are active actors in the response and have a role in decision making on issues affecting their communities.
In the spirit of peer learning, the Humanitarian Coalition invites you to the release of this report and an ensuing panel discussion with experts in humanitarian programing.
When: April 15, 2016, from 2-4 pm
Where: University of Ottawa, Faculty of Social Sciences, room 1030
