UN Humanitarian Coordinators Annual Retreat
Groupe URD was involved in the Humanitarian Coordinators Annual Retreat which took place on 12 and 13 May in Montreux (Switzerland). The aim of this annual meeting is to discuss challenges facing humanitarian action and current humanitarian operations (successes, failures, funding, etc.). It brings together UN Humanitarian Coordinators and representatives of NGOs, UN agencies, researchers and donors. For the second time since the creation of this event, Groupe URD was invited to present its work, this year on the topic of humanitarian operations in urban contexts. The main theme of this year’s retreat was the implementation of the transformative agenda, notably in the context of level 3 (L3) emergencies such as the Philippines, the Central African Republic and the Syrian crisis.
