FOCUS1    Diaspora FG    Focus 1   FOCUS2    focus 3

In advance of the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, consultations were conducted in Ireland with the view to shaping Ireland’s contribution to the development of a new global humanitarian agenda.  Stakeholders across five groups (public sector, private sector, NGOs, diaspora of disaster- and conflict-affected countries, and academia) were consulted on a range of pertinent topics by employing diverse research methods. This process resulted in the below submission to the WHS:

Irish Consultation Process for the World Humanitarian Summit

During the consultation process itself, the findings from the stakeholder groups were synthesised and grouped under four broad issues: Localising humanitarian response and making people the prime agents of response; Disaster risk reduction and resilience; Serving the needs of people in conflict & The new generation of disasters, innovation and change. These broad issues that resulted from Phase I (data collection) served as the starting point for Phase II (data analysis) of the consultative process. Papers from Phase I can be accessed below:
