Climate change is one of the biggest challenges the humanitarian system is faced with at present and it will continue to affect the quantity of need and the ways of working even more so in the future.

In light of the adverse negative effects of climate change projected to cascade into all sectors of society around the globe, the already overburdened and underfinanced humanitarian system is not fit for purpose to meet the challenges ahead. To be prepared, to anticipate future crisis scenarios and to think of constructive ways to meet these challenges is key for the humanitarian future.

This consultation workshop builds on two previous stakeholder events with humanitarian NGOs in 2022 and 2023. It aims to facilitate a discussion about the effects of climate change on the humanitarian sector in the three thematic areas: norms & principles, mandates and operations. The workshop seeks to provide the opportunity for a diverse range of stakeholders from think tanks, donor governments, and UN organisations to share their feedback, experiences and challenges and to support further CHA research in the area. We appreciate insights on the key research areas from the vantage point of stakeholders’ institutional background. A CHA discussion paper on the topic will provide the basis for the debate and the ways forward.

Workshop language is English. Participation is by invitation only.
