Expert Dialogue on the Role and Responsibility of the Affected State in International Disaster Response
The objectives of this event are twofold:
- To examine how affected states can best facilitate humanitarian access in (non-conflict) disasters while also ensuring adequate coordination, oversight and quality guarantees; and
- To engage in a results-oriented discussion on how the international community can better support affected states to fulfill their regulatory and facilitating responsibilities.
This Expert Dialogue is hosted by the Chatham House Centre on Global Health Security in the lead-up to a High-Level Dialogue on the same subject, to be convened in Geneva on 25-26 October 2011 in partnership with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA) and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
Attendance is by invitation only.
