Humanitarian Congress Berlin

For more than 20 years, the Humanitarian Congress Berlin has been debating, analysing, evaluating and developing the theory and practice of humanitarian action. It brings together leading experts from medical and humanitarian organisations, governments, and the media, as well as young professionals interested in humanitarian work. It provides participants from around the globe with a unique opportunity to share their experience, knowledge and ideas of humanitarian action in an international and multi-disciplinary setting. By gathering more than 800 individuals from across the globe every year, the Humanitarian Congress Berlin has created a community with a shared interest in the main challenges confronting humanitarian action.

Theme: A Perfect Storm: Humanitarian Impacts of Climate Change

This year’s agenda will revolve around the humanitarian impacts of climate change. What are the links between climate change, health, migration and security? What do the consequences look like? Are humanitarian actors sufficiently responsive to the current and future health consequences of climate change and environmental degradation? Do we need to rethink and adapt our standard practices? Do we need to cooperate better with actors from other fields to combat climate change and its consequences? How can we help provide protection to the most vulnerable populations? What is the environmental impact of our own humanitarian activities and are we considering our own environmental footprint? How sustainable is our work – how much are we contributing to the problem?
