Par : François Audet (expert associé) Discussion papers: Canadian humanitarian conference

The papers presented in this volume are the outcome of some of the presentations made during the conference by Canadian humanitarian experts.

 

The topics covered by these papers are wide ranging and
tackle key challenges faced by Canadian and international humanitarian
actors. This includes finding ways to equip humanitarian workers with
v
the skills necessary to respond to increasingly complex and multi-layered crises.
They also explore how to make best use of new technologies to facilitate better
humanitarian action in the field. Other topics covered include understanding how
to operate in contexts of acute violence and vulnerability and finally on how to
make humanitarian action more sustainable and accountable.
