ADHOC-CC participates in UNICEF Consultation with NGOs and Humanitarian Partners

15 Feb, 2016
Recently, ADHOC-CC participated in a unique initiative organised by UNICEF in Geneva.  The consultation drew the participation of over 100 representatives from UNICEF field offices, head-quarters in New York, and international and national NGOs from across the globe to discuss the ways in which already existing partnerships could be enhanced in order to realize children’s rights in emergencies. It was the first UNICEF consultation with NGOs that focused on this critical topic.
The overall purpose of the consultation aimed to improve the way UNICEF, stand-by partners and humanitarian NGOs work together.  The participatory nature of the consultation initiated full engagement among participants as group work and dialogue dominated much of the two days.  The various group activities saw participants mapping the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of different elements of partnership. From the work generated throughout the two days, the participants were able to develop a list of actions to be implemented in the short term and the long term with the aim of enhancing dialogue and working towards a strategic approach.  These were compiled to feed into an action plan for improved UNICEF and NGO collaboration.

ADHOC-CC partaking in this initiative was crucial in bringing the views and experiences of a pan-African NGO that strives to improve its collaboration with international agencies such as UNICEF in order to better respond to and work with affected communities in Africa. ADHOC-CC welcomes this on-going process and plans to take on an active role in ensuring that the work developed through this initiative is followed through in practice.
