Germany’s new humanitarian strategy – opportunity or painful process? The relevance of prioritising key topics and resources

Germany’s new humanitarian strategy will be presented very soon. During its development process, it was emphasised that it should be developed with greater focus and clearer priorities than the previous strategy up to 2023. This seems particularly relevant, as the issue of prioritisation in humanitarian action has also gained great momentum in international debates in times of declining resources. In this respect, international partners also have high expectations of Germany as the world’s second largest donor.

But what exactly do international partners expect? What lessons can be learned from the previous humanitarian strategy and successful prioritisation of German humanitarian policies, such as in the field of anticipatory action? What can be learned from experiences beyond the humanitarian sector, such as German stabilisation policy, which faces similar challenges? And what do these experiences mean for the strategic allocation of resources in times of shrinking budgets?

We will discuss this on 29 May 2024 with

  • Dr Thorsten Klose-Zuber, Secretary General, Help – Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V.
  • Philipp Rotmann, Director, Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi)
  • Sonja Hövelmann, Research Fellow, Centre for Humanitarian Action (CHA)

Response: Pit Köhler, Head of Division S08 / Humanitarian Assistance – Policy, International Organisations, Multilateral Coordination,  German Federal Foreign Office

Moderation: Ralf Südhoff, Director CHA
