    Event reports

    Tags: EU, Funding, Principles, NGOs, Civil Protection

    This Roundtable on Humanitarian Aid, held during the Italian EU Presidency brought together NGOs active in humanitarian aid from Italy and Europe, as well as academia, civil protection, ministries and European institutions. In addition to furthering debate on humanitarian topics, this
    event presented a good opportunity to examine links between EU and national realities as relates to humanitarian policy and practice. As stressed by many speakers, 2014 has been the annus horribilis for the high number of crises – Syria, Iraq, CAR, South Sudan and Ebola just to mention some, and the need for political solutions to ongoing crises was raised repeatedly. Discussions also focused on the collaboration between NGOs and civil protection and military actors. A further panel highlighted strategies and challenges regarding funding, and NGOs’ experiences of using communication to increase support for their work and make humanitarian work more visible.
