AID AND HUMANITARIAN CRISIS: MAINTAINING COMMITMENTS AFTER THE STORM
Tuesday, February 27, 6:30–7:45 p.m.
When a humanitarian crisis arises due to a natural disaster, an outbreak of civil conflict, or other factors, an initial rush of aid comes in but slows to a trickle once media and public attention turns elsewhere—often leaving aid efforts underfunded and stalled just as long-term reconstruction is most needed. How are aid organizations working now to keep donors engaged in international relief work after the earthquake, hurricane, or famine is no longer in the news?
Join Boaz Paldi, manager of fundraising and engagement at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and a panel of fundraisers and engagement experts in a discussion of the challenges they face in maintaining donor focus and delivering aid.
