Event description
Join us on World Humanitarian Day as we explore the current and potential impacts of this health crisis on conflict.

About this Event

COVID-19 has now been recognised as a threat to international peace and security as the United Nations Security Council unanimously passes a resolution that calls for a global "immediate cessation of hostilities." This is a recognition of the complex impacts that COVID19 is having in conflict zones around the world.

Whilst international aid workers, journalists and diplomats head back to their home countries due to the pandemic, what is happening to those living through both COVID-19 and conflict?

With the disruption of humanitarian supply chains and the distraction away from peace negotiations, civilians caught in the midst of armed conflict, and refugees and displaced people fleeing violence will bear the brunt of the health emergency.

Join us on World Humanitarian Day as we explore the current and potential impacts of the health crises on conflict.

This is the final session of the  No Safe Space:  Crisis response in COVID-19  four-part online forum series co-presented by the Centre for Humanitarian Leadership (CHL),  Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) and  Humanitarian Advisory Group (HAG).

Panellists:

Veronica Koman: Human rights activist and lawyer

Dr Ihlas Altinci: Care International, Sexual and Reproductive Health Adviser

Dr Win Tun Kyi: Karuna Mission social Solidarity (KMSS), National Director

Orzala Nemat: Director Afghanistan Research & Evaluation Unit (AREU)

Facillitator: Beth Eggleston - Humanitarian Advisory Group, Founder

The panel discussion and Q&A session will be an opportunity for the speakers to consider questions provided by participants. You can submit your questions to the speakers during your registration, and during the webinar itself.

Your privacy is important to us. Please note that we will be recording the event. All participants will be de-identified in any shared content. By registering for this event, you agree that we may email you about similar events. You may opt out at any time.

We hope that you can join us to identify the challenges, opportunities, and successes, as we track the evolution of the humanitarian response to this unprecedented crisis.

See you at the forum and until then, take care and stay safe.
