'Afghan stories: waiting for hope', photo exhibition and panel

29 May 2018

Brussels

Nearly forty years of conflict have deeply affected Afghanistan. Despite efforts to stabilize the country, the security and humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate. In 2018, 3.3 million people are estimated to be in need of humanitarian assistance.

 

The ERM was launched in Afghanistan in 2011. ERM partners, including Action Against Hunger, work together to ensure a wide geographical coverage of the country and  provide rapid humanitarian response to the immediate needs of communities affected by conflict or natural disasters. This panel discussion aims at getting a better understanding of the Afghan population’s needs based on evidence from the field to address vulnerabilities, particularly of displaced populations. 

 

The panel participants will emphasize the operational and political challenges of the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, the future landscape of needs in the country and will discuss recommendations to States for better supporting actors on the ground, not only by providing financial aid but also through political and diplomatic support.

 

The panel will be accompanied by an Afghan Stories photo exhibition which will highlight the individual realities of people in need in Afghanistan. The discussion will be followed by a reception.

 

We look forward to welcoming you. More information will be shared in the coming weeks.
