Description of sessions:

Panel discussion: a selection of speakers from different backgrounds will share their insights on a specific topic. Usually each speaker will share a brief introduction to their work, research or experience (max 10mins) then we will discuss key questions among the panel and open the floor for Q&A with the audience.

Case study session: each speaker will share a case study and answer questions around which challenges they had to overcome, what are the key lessons learned and how this project could be scaled up or translated into a different scenario. The audience will also add their questions for the speakers.

Pitch tank: this session is based on Shark Tank (Dragon’s Den) and features the presentation of new technological innovations to the audience. Then an expert panel will provide feedback on the product and insights on how best to approach and develop working relationships with their organizations and the sector as whole.

Round table discussion: The round table session includes a number of parallel organised informal and interactive discussions in a smaller (self-) selected group (around 8-14 participants) and allows to discuss a specific topic in more detail. The moderator will briefly introduce the theme of the discussion and each participant will share their interest (e.g. their current project, challenge, research). There will be back-up questions for the discussion, but generally the group is encouraged to decide which direction they’d like the discussion to go.
The round table might be scheduled over lunch or coffee.

    Humanitarian Aid and Trends in Procurement

    AIDF has released an infographic that explores humanitarian aid and trends in procurement. Within disaster relief logistics, procurement accounts for 65% of total expenditures by the UN organisations. The latest figures released by the United Nations Procurement Division found the total procurement of goods increased by $826 million, a jump of 12.1 percent. This reflects a stark trend: the last decade has seen a sharp increase in the number of natural disasters across the world.
