The HNPW is a free event for professionals working in humanitarian preparedness and response. Previous HNPW participants represented governments, donors, UN Agencies, IFRC/RC societies, NGOs, academia, the private sector, and the military.

Groupe URD will present its work and activities on a booth in the exhibition hall throughout the week.

Tuesday, February 4th, Michael Carrier will co-facilitate the private session « Quality and accountability – the role of H2H », with CHS Alliance and Sphere. They will lead this session for other network members, to explore what accountability looks like for agencies that provide services to other humanitarians, rather than directly to affected populations. How do we continue to put people in need at the heart of what we do, and enable them to hold us accountable for the services we provide?
This is a private event for H2H Network members.
From 14h to 15.30 pm, room 14.
