International Development

There has never been enough humanitarian funding. Needs have always gone unmet, and the international community has long sought ways to fix this problem. Yet there now appear to be renewed attention and energy for change. This is prompted by the sense that humanitarian assistance is at a critical juncture: inadequate resources are being over-stretched to cover a wider scope of needs, in a greater number of crises. Finance & Funding Theatre will discuss the main challenges and opportunities in this framework.
