The Grand Bargain – a package of commitments to improve humanitarian financing following ten work streams – was launched at the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) and aims to reduce the humanitarian funding gap and improve funding processes.

Protracted conflicts such as those in Syria, Iraq, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and elsewhere, often combined with natural disasters and food crises, have contributed to an unprecedented number of people flee their homes – many being displaced within their own countries. How does the law protect such internally displaced persons? Join us on 21 February, when PHAP will host an online learning session with Cecilia Jimenez, recently appointed Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of IDPs, in its series on humanitarian law and policy.

The beta version of the event calendar of the Geneva Humanitarian Connector is now publicly available. The calendar aims to be a comprehensive listing, not only of public events on topics of relevance to the humanitarian community, but also of private meetings and events in related fields that may be of interest. As such, the calendar is a useful tool for keeping track of initiatives and processes that are ongoing in Geneva for anyone who has a professional or personal interest in them and who may be looking to connect with other individuals and organizations working on similar issues.
