From 9 to 12 February 2015, the yearly meetings of the advisory groups of several emergency preparedness and response networks supported by OCHA’s Emergency Services Branch were held together for the first time. More than 400 representatives from Member States, regional organizations, the military, NGOs, UN agencies, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, and the private sector attended the first Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Week.
Building on the success of the first Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Week, the second annual meeting of the Consultative Group is held from 1 to 4 February 2016 in Geneva. The event will be led by DFID UK and OCHA as co-chairs of the Consultative Group.
The HNPW will bring operational and service-oriented response and preparedness networks together on the basis of shared, practical challenges that cannot be solved by any singular network or organization.
Two sessions on Environment in Response will take place during the HNPW: on Wednesday, 3 February from 9.00 to 10.30 a.m. and on Thursday, 4 February from 2.00 to 3.3p p.m.

The Humanitarian Networks and Partnership Week will offer a range of events for participants. On Monday 1 February, the official opening and a Keynote Speech will be followed a panel of experienced emergency responders engaging in a forward-looking discussion on making emergency preparedness and response more effective. On Tuesday 2 February, a series of plenary sessions entitled Response After Nepal: How Can We Make it Better?, will focus on two primary areas for improvement derived from an analysis of over 30 Nepal earthquake response after-action review reports: localising and contextualizing response; and improving access to, and within, affected countries.
The following two days will see 12 annual network meetings, most of which are open to public. At the same time, the Consultative Group Focus Task Forces (FTFs) will hold workshops to consult with and update partners on progress, and Thematic Sessions will provide a forum for the development of new initiatives. A few ideas will be pitched in five-minute presentations at the Speaker’s Corner during coffee breaks.
