17-19 June: ECOSOC Humanitarian Affairs Segment
The Humanitarian Affairs Segment (HAS) provides a unique opportunity for Member States to address challenges, operational and normative progress on the humanitarian policy agenda. This year’s HAS will take place from 17 – 19 June in Geneva and will focus on "the future of humanitarian affairs: towards greater inclusiveness, coordination, interoperability and effectiveness".

The HAS also includes two main high-level panel discussions on: a) Addressing Capacity and Resource Challenges through Humanitarian Financing; b) Protecting Civilians by Upholding International Humanitarian Law. The annual, informal ECOSOC event on the transition from relief to development also represents an important opportunity to discuss the issue of transition. The event will focus on ‘Supporting the transition from relief to development: Promoting recovery and resilience’.
