The Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Week (HNPW), co-chaired by OCHA and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), is an annual event held in Geneva in the first week of February. Since 2015, this event provides a unique forum for humanitarian networks and partnerships to meet and address key humanitarian issues. Networks and Partnerships hold their annual meetings during the week, and work together to find ways to solve common problems. HNPW convenes a large number of participants from diverse groups, including the UN, NGOs, Member States, the Private Sector, the military, academia and others.
The next HNPW will take place at the International Conference Centre in Geneva from 5-9 February 2018. More than 30 Networks and Partnerships are expected to participate, and hold their annual meetings during the week. An Inter-Network Day will take place on Wednesday, 7 February and it will offer participants from all backgrounds and sectors the opportunity to learn, exchange knowledge and network.
HNPW is a free event for emergency preparedness and response professionals.
