Early-bird booking opens for HHR Europe

You can enhance locally-led humanitarian response by making a few practical changes to the way you operate. Whether you are a human resources (HR) professional in a globally active NGO or leading a grass-roots agency in the field, download our flyer and join HHR Europe 2017 to find out how.

Together, we will:

  • Explore what the Grand Bargain and Charter 4 Change mean for the humanitarian aid sector and the way we manage human resources;
  • Discover partnership and capacity development schemes, as well as skills building models;
  • Share our respective experience at a lively and interactive Market Place;
  • Participate in a World Café group discussion on localisation challenges in the HR field.

As a result of the conference we aim to:

  • Raise awareness of the key challenges, highlight best practices and consider the opportunities of the localisation agenda by providing insights, practical tools and momentum for action;
  • Identify key actions for HR professionals in their own organisations, what we need to change as a sector and how we can leverage our influence as a community of HR professionals to promote a more effective and meaningful humanitarian response.

Why localisation?

At the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS), which took place in May 2016, the UN Secretary General called upon the international community to put local response at the heart of humanitarian efforts. The Grand Bargain, one of the major outcomes of the summit, seeks to make principled humanitarian action as local as possible and as international as necessary.

The commitment is supported by a growing body of evidence showing that partnerships with national and local organisations improve the quality and effectiveness of aid response.

Fee and booking

Our early-bird discount fee of GBP 700 is available until 11 August, after which the conference fee will go up to GPB 800.
