Discussing how humanitarian and development actors can work together using the New Deal to achieve the SDGs in contexts of fragility and protracted crisis.
Galata Room, Lüfti Kirdar Convention and Exhibition Center, 24 May 2016 | 9:00 am - 10h30 am
The increasing number of protracted humanitarian crises pose an enormous challenge for the international community. Yet this challenge gives rise to a unique opportunity for strengthening the collective contributions of development and humanitarian actors in contexts of crisis and fragility.
The panel will discuss what ‘bridging the humanitarian and development divide’ could look like in practice, and especially how actors from both communities could forge more effective partnerships in these contexts, with the help of the New Deal principles, the SDG framework, and the commitments of the Stockholm Declaration.
This High Level panel will bring together Ministers and senior government officials from g7+ countries affected by conflict and fragility, OECD countries, UN agencies and other multilateral and non-governmental organisations with responsibility for development and humanitarian action.
