Resilience: Translating promise into reality
Humanitarian need has outpaced humanitarian resources, stemming in part from protracted and recurring conflicts and crises. One of today’s biggest humanitarian challenges is that of displacement, caused by conflict and natural disasters.
To further discussion on the need for a resilience perspective, Interpeace and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NCR) are co-hosting a side event at the World Humanitarian Summit called Resilience: Translating promise into reality. The side event will take place on May 23 in Istanbul, Turkey at 11:00 am to 12:30 pm, seeks to support the overall objectives of the Summit and includes a particular stated-objective: ‘Change people’s lives – From delivery of aid to ending need’.
