  • Basic info: Humanitarian action at the United Nations

    Humanitarian action is a core task of the United Nations, anchored in Article 1 of the Charter of the United Nations. But what does humanitarian action mean for the United Nations? Sonja Hövelmann, research fellow at CHA explains it in the UN-BASIS-INFORMATION 64 of the United Nations Association of Germany [German].


COVID-19, climate change, racism, more and more people in need – humanitarian aid is facing major challenges. In the new CHA podcast CHAtroom, practitioners from the humanitarian aid sector speak out and testify how they engage.

  • CHAtroom #9: Greening Aid

    The consequences of climate change pose immense challenges to the humanitarian system - at the same time humanitarian aid itself is also responsible for environmental impacts and needs to change in this respect. With Véronique de Geoffroy, Groupe URD, we talk about the buzzword "Greening Aid".
