The Centre for Humanitarian Action (CHA) cordially invites you to its conference
Five years Grand Bargain –
time to restart humanitarian reform?
taking place on 11-12 May 2021.
May 2021 marks the fifth anniversary of the first World Humanitarian Summit and the agreed Grand Bargain. The Grand Bargain was planned as a key initiative to substantially reform humanitarian action based on ten commitments of governments and aid agencies. Now that its five-year timeframe is coming to an end, it is time to take stock: what has been achieved and what is yet to be done?
In a series of virtual discussion formats, we are going to explore these questions with a wide range of experts while focusing on key areas in a potential future of the Grand Bargain. These include
- humanitarian reform and debating the need for a restart
- localisation and discussing the new role of INGOs and intermediaries in locally led humanitarian action
- humanitarian funding and considering the role of donors as both drivers and inhibitors of reform.
An invitation including the detailed programme on
- 11 May (1pm to 6pm CEST)
- 12 May (9am to 1pm CEST)
with speakers and sessions, as well as the registration link will follow shortly.
Please feel free to share this with your colleagues, partner organisations and other interested stakeholders.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at our online conference!
