This program is hosted by our partner, Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members.
Complex humanitarian emergencies (CHEs) are often challenging for U.S.-based funders to understand. Only a small fraction of U.S. philanthropic funding goes to CHEs, yet it’s where the most significant humanitarian needs exist today.
The 4Cs – crisis, conflict, climate and COVID-19 – are the heart of the intricate layers of compounding crises in CHEs today. With so many different humanitarian emergencies happening, how can funders know whether, where and how to focus their attention?
What will you learn?
- What are available humanitarian assesments and analyses and how to use these tools to help determine funding priorities
- Complex humanitarian emergencies in Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and how to highlight examples of the types of help typically needed in these contexts
- How to better identify and prioritize CHEs and learn about the complex circumstances surrounding them
- Ways to determine how to best support adversely affected communities that have the greatest unmet needs on the planet today
Who should attend?
All interested funders in grantmaking roles. What to expect: presentation followed by Q&A.
