This event has passed.

Although there is a general awareness in the humanitarian sector that climate change is important and also a willingness to do something about it, green and sustainable action is not yet standard practices. When setting up an emergency response it is, quite logically, not the first thing that comes to mind. However, as long as green humanitarian aid is not the standard, no big changes will be made.

Together with KUNO, IECAH, Groupe URD and as part of the European Networking Project CHA invites to a webinar with an open discussion on how green humanitarian practice could be supported by basic commitments, standards or rules (like the climate and environment charter etc.), with:

  • Karolina Kalinoswka, Policy Officer at DG ECHO
  • Aline Hubert, researcher and environment expert of Groupe URD (France)
  • Bruno Jochum, director Climate Action Accelerator
  • Kathrine Vad, Environment and Climate Change Advisor of the Executive Office of the Director-General, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)
  • Roberta Borgognoni, Project Manager of the Environmental Impact Project of the Operational Centre Amsterdam, Médecins Sans Frontières
  • Mihir Joshi, SEEDS India (Charter4Change about local knowledge and locally led change)
