In times of a pandemic, how do we work with development cooperation and emergency?


Forum Syd would like to invite you to a webinar on how civil society can work with development cooperation and emergency? This is an opportunity to increase our knowledge on the relationship between these two fields and open a relevant conversation about our role as civil society organisations as we face a global crisis.

Seeing the unprecedented global crisis brought by the Covid-19, organisations are wondering where do development cooperation and emergency responses, usually associated with humanitarian aid, meet? You may have asked yourself what is the role of my organisation here? How can we adapt? If you identify with this, this is the webinar for you!

Target Group: Forum Syd member and partner organisations.

The goal of this webinar is to increase knowledge on the potential complementarity and linkage between crisis, emergencies and development work. At the same we hope with this webinar to open a dialogue and kick off more activities to deepen our knowledge on the subject.

The methodology of the session:

The webinar will have the format of a conference. It consists of three presentations, that will focus on an overview of the relationship between development cooperation and humanitarian aid, a framework to the complementary work between this two fields and Action Aid Senegal’s experience combining RBA and emergency response. After the presentations, there will be a panel discussion and we will close with a Q&A.

The panellists:

  • Claudia Arenas – Forum Syd.
