“IOM-NGO Humanitarian Consultations: Open Dialogue for More Effective Crisis Response Partnerships”

Reliefweb posted the above-titled article, which reads in part as follows:

“Geneva – Strong partnerships are essential for the delivery of effective, principled humanitarian assistance at a time when an unprecedented 131.7 million people are affected by crises in new and increasingly complex circumstances.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) responds to crises alongside hundreds of NGOs and other partners contributing unique perspectives and expertise to all phases and dimensions of a response. Recognizing that humanitarian responses alone are insufficient, there is a new call for improved collaboration across the humanitarian-development nexus to reduce risk, need and vulnerability.

IOM annually convenes IOM-NGO Humanitarian Consultations where the Organization and NGO partners discuss shared values, unity of purpose, and their respective strengths and limitations to ensure these collaborations effectively protect and assist affected populations.

The 2018 Consultation brought together 90 participants including representatives of 39 NGOs in 20 countries, to discuss internal displacement, especially in protracted crises. Topics included the humanitarian-development-peace nexus,humanitarian protection, and transitional justice.”
