A shift in the humanitarian finance & funding model
The Africa Aid and Humanitarian Finance Conference 2019 aims to create a forum for rich dialogue and debate between leading players interested in the opportunity to stimulate renewed energy and commitment to resolve longstanding humanitarian financing challenges and to identify new approaches and models of engagement to address the needs of humanitarian
Humanitarian groups are starting to collaborate with the private sector on investment solutions, scaling revenue and pioneering alternative funding models and paradigms, but there is a still a lot that needs to be done
Finance & funding is the lead daunting challenge for the humanitarian world chiefly because of overly reliant on traditional, donor-driven funding models. Industry experts are therefore saying that the humanitarian financing is both thinly spread and inconsistent. If this has to change, internal reforms, coupled with a radical global agenda will be needed to meet the humanitarian financing challenges of the future. A far wider ecosystem of actors will be needed so that the cost of managing risk and of responding to post-crisis needs is a shared responsibility.
