Description

Summary

The number of new and ongoing humanitarian and security crises during 2023 continued to stretch the resources of the global humanitarian community. In particular, levels of conflict and instability have put great demands on organisations’ limited safety, security and access capabilities.  

This session will be a discussion on how organisations managed competing security priorities during 2023, and how existing resources can be better utilised, opportunities for interagency cooperation, and going forward how to optimise resources and collaboration to ensure that humanitarian services can safely and sustainably reach those in need.
