The Future of Humanitarian Response


To mark the launch of our new Business for Humanitarian Action and Peace platform, the UN Global Compact and UN OCHA - with the support of other partners - will convene a session on ‘The Future of Humanitarian Response’. With presentations by leading experts and opportunities for interactive discussion, this session will outline how humanitarian response can be improved and what collaboration between the humanitarian community and the private sector will look like in the future. As technology has become a core element of humanitarian operations, we will zoom into areas in which the private sector has a crucial role to play such as digital identification and payments, data sharing and emergency connectivity. This event is by invitation only. For more information and to request an invitation, please reach out to Ms. Tiina Mylly ( Due to limited capacity, registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
