WCC to host discussion on humanitarian needs

The World Council of Churches and ACT Alliance, on 4 March, will host a 90-minute discussion on humanitarian needs. The purpose will be to hear and discuss the views of faith-based organisations on what constitutes “humanitarian need” and how best to prioritize between different needs and contexts.

This is an increasingly important issue in humanitarian policy today as needs are rising around the world due to the climate emergency, conflicts, and economic injustice—even while humanitarian budgets are decreasing.

The discussion will be based on a recent paper on humanitarian need by Dr Hugo Slim of the University of Oxford for Impact Initiatives and published by the Norwegian Centre for Humanitarian Studies.

This is the third of four discussions held in Geneva on the subject. All interested participants welcome, both in person and online.

For those wishing to participate remotely, please request a Zoom link from Peter.Prove@wcc-coe.org.
