HPG/ICRC: Getting aid where needed

29 April 2013

London

Knocking on the front door doesn't always get you in. That's been the hard lesson over decades for humanitarians seeking to bring assistance to those in need. This event will address the practical challenges organisations face in reaching those in need, and the strategies adopted to overcome them.  The discussions will take humanitarian crises in Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, Syria and Myanmar as examples to focus the discussion.

Also streamed live. Follow #AidAccess on Twitter for live coverage.
