The success of each individual plan in the Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO) is inextricably linked to the level of funding received towards activities planned and appealed for. In spite of the complexity and enormity of humanitarian needs and of the underlying causes, donors and humanitarian organizations must come to a joint understanding of how resource mobilization and funding allocations will best enable effective humanitarian response, and help reduce the risk of humanitarian needs and alleviate the consequences. This event will consist of two mini-sessions: 1) presentations 2) moderated panel discussion (Davos style). The event will adopt a participatory approach enabling broad exchange of good practices and diagnosis of challenges to resource mobilization.

Sexual harassment and abuse (SHA) of any kind is also antithetical to the principles for which the United Nations and humanitarian assistance agencies stand and is corrosive to a working environment where all staff feel respected and valued.  In line with the theme of this year’s ECOSOC HAS, this side event will seize an opportunity to maintain momentum and a spotlight on these issues from the perspective of being accountable to those we serve and those we work alongside. Equally as important as the UN system’s Agencies, Funds and Programs and other key humanitarian actors, Member States have a role in ensuring that collective efforts to address SEA and SHA are adequately resourced, political will is sustained to support efforts and ensure that their nationals committing SEA and SHA are held to account.
