Mitigating risks: an inherent part of humanitarian action

Forum sessions


This session will focus on the risky humanitarian imperative to act fast, in dangerous, unstable, instrumentalised and non-permissive environments.

It will focus on how to reconcile the need to be accountable with the necessity to take risks to save lives.

It will explore approaches on duty of care and risk aversion, and how collective answers can help addressing and mitigating these risks.
