Global Health Cluster Partners Meeting: draft for consultation.

The New Way of Working represents an opportunity to achieve step changes in the working methods, efficiency and effectiveness of humanitarian and development actors towards reducing needs, risks, and vulnerabilities. However, how this new approach will be applied in protracted conflict situations has generated some concerns mostly around the protection and preservation of humanitarian space vis-a-vis peacebuilding objectives as outlined in the Sustaining Peace resolutions. Thus, in these settings the New Way of Working needs to be carefully considered and its implementation clearly framed.
