You are invited to participate in an expert webinar to discuss the findings of HPG’s latest research and help us craft key messages and recommendations for the project.

This 90 minute webinar will explore how a wider range of resource flows in humanitarian crises should be considered, including from affected people, diaspora, volunteers and other actors such as the private sector and faith groups that are only recently gaining recognition in the international humanitarian assistance sector as important sources of support. We will share emerging findings of case studies from Nepal, Uganda and Iraq, as well as a thematic study on remittances in humanitarian crises.

As humanitarian practitioners and policy-makers, this webinar will also provide an opportunity to hear from your experiences on how these flows of resources operate during humanitarian crises. We would be interested in hearing your perspective on questions such as:

  • What are the implications for your work of considering a wider range of resource flows in humanitarian crises beyond ODA?
  • What would it take to gather additional data on resource flows, what can this data be used for and what are its limits?
  • What kind of recommendations would be useful and actionable for humanitarian agencies, donors and affected countries?
