Humanitarian Networks & Partnerships Weeks 2024

CHS Alliance is excited to run a series of gatherings at this year’s Humanitarian Networks & Partnerships Week (HNPW).

Over the course of the two-week conference, CHS Alliance will lead the Organisational Culture and Power Relations area of common concern, hosting a range of important sessions on improving accountability across the aid system.

Join us for a series of engaging events on topics ranging from improving investigations into sexual abuse, to addressing the funding challenges that block accountability.

Face-to-face sessions:

In person events will take place at the Geneva International Conference Center, Rue de Varembé 17, 1211 Genève, Switzerland.

  • Working Well, 6 May 2024, 07.00-08.30 UTC, Salle 2. Learn how to pursue excellence in how you work every day through seven simple habits. This session will improve how you work and strengthen your alignment to the Core Humanitarian Standard.
  • Leading Well, 6 May 2024, 12.00-13.30 UTC, Salle 1. Leading a humanitarian organisation in 2024 is a tremendously challenging role. This session will explore how leaders are feeling and being supported.
  • Funding Well, 6 May 2024, 14.00-15.30 UTC, Salle 2. Official launch of the Funding Well report, which offers good practice examples from within and outside the humanitarian sector and a four step process towards values-aligned, trust-based solidarity.

If you are attending the event in Geneva, we invite you to meet CHS Alliance team members at our exhibition stand 6 – 10 May. However you take part, we look forward to engaging with you at HNPW 2024 to collectively strengthen accountability in the aid system, so people affected by crisis have their rights respected.
