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.

Bringing African Voices to Humanitarianism
  • Support and empowerment of indigenous organizations
  • Flexible and timely needs based funding
  • Genuine partnerships based on equality, transparency, complementarity and shared-responsibility
  • Acknowledgement and integration of African CSOs agenda and strategy
  • International recognition of African CSOs value, contribution and expertise
  • Continued improvement in humanitarian delivery through enhanced accountability and sustainability
  • Increased capacity development for African CSOs and vulnerable populations

ADHOC-CC’s breadth of experience, local knowledge and expertise has led us to play an ever increasing role in global advocacy, largely based on the above issues.  We regularly take part in international humanitarian meetings, workshops and conferences, regrettably more often than not as the only southern based representative.  

We bring an all important African voice to the otherwise northern dominated international humanitarian field, confident that Africans have what it takes to deal with the challenges facing the continent.
The development of more equitable and mutually beneficial relations between north-south humanitarian actors can only serve to improve humanitarian assistance in Africa. Most importantly it is assisted populations who are set to gain from locally sensitive and better able indigenous NGOs, with an emphasis on participation, sustainability and ownership.  

This is especially important in the current context, as the international humanitarian community seeks to redefine itself, in order to better serve affected populations.

Our efforts see us working closely together with many local and international partners, as well as participating in numerous global networks, forums and workshops, these include among others:

Recently we have paid special attention to the subject of accountability, working together with SPHERE, People in Aid and ALNAP.  We remain dedicated to optimum transparency, in order to best serve the assisted populations to whom we are ultimately accountable.
