Tout d'abord, l'après-midi débutera, dès 14h30, avec une présentation de la Norme CHS elle-même: son historique, la raison de son développement et son contenu. Ensuite la deuxième partie sera constituée par une discussion autour de questions telles que: les défis et opportunités quant au renforcement de la qualité et de la redevabilité dans le travail humanitaire et de développement; quelle peut être la contribution d'un outil tel que le CHS - ou d'autres outils - à ce renforcement; ces outils présent-ils des limites ou demandent-ils certaines conditions? Quelles autres bonnes pratiques méritent d'être mentionnées, selon l'expérience des participants présents?

Des spécialistes de l'aide humanitaire et du développement seront présents pour donner leurs avis et répondre aux questions des participants.

Le nombre de places étant limité, et afin de nous permettre la meilleure organisation possible merci de vous inscrire sur ce site ou par email à gcyvoct@hapinternational.org
