Over the past 17 months the humanitarian system has been affected by external forces which have brought about unplanned and unanticipated disruptions to humanitarian action, including:
- climate change; and
- a greater range of voices challenging traditional notions of humanitarianism and how its principles and purpose relate to social justice.
This year’s ALNAP Meeting will provide a unique space for the sector to come together to identify the kinds of disruptions that are taking place; where and why they are happening; and what we can learn from them. Our aim is to understand the new trajectories of humanitarian action and be in a better position to manage these changes and disruptions to bring about more effective responses for crisis-affected people.
The meeting will address four key areas in which changes and disruptions are taking place: humanitarian ethics and principles; humanitarian financing; operations and programming; and evaluation, learning and policy.
Please read the 2021 ALNAP Meeting concept note for more details. The full agenda for the meeting will be released in September.
