HNPW Session: Stories of Adaptation and Anticipation in the Post 2020 Humanitarian Landscape
Institutionalizing Accountability towards Affected Populations (AAP) into how humanitarian responses are implemented is not just an active commitment to use power responsibly, but also results in more effective responses that better meet the real need of affected populations.
Events in 2020 have disrupted Accountability towards Affected Populations (AAP) efforts – and aid more broadly – across the globe. Humanitarian actors at all levels have spoken of uncertainty and new challenges at every turn. Whether we like it or not, the humanitarian sector is being forced to rethink, rework and adapt tried-and-tested ways of working.
In this changing landscape, accountability to affected people has never been more important.
In this technical meeting, six organisations will showcase their stories of adaptation and anticipation, and learning for improving accountability to affected people at all stages of the humanitarian program cycle. The CHS Alliance, Translators Without Borders (TWB), Sphere, Humanitarian Quality Assurance Initiative (HQAI), Ground Truth Solutions (GTS) and World Vision International invite HNPW participants for this storytelling session followed by an open discussion with the audience.
