IOM-NGO Humanitarian Consultations

IOM-NGO Humanitarian Consultations are an annual platform for IOM and NGOs to engage in dialogue, discuss shared values and unity of purpose, identify respective strengths and limitations, reflect on current challenges facing the humanitarian sector, exchange best practices, develop key recommendations to further joint engagement, and examine the realities of the implementation of the Principles of Partnership to better foster their application.

Humanitarian Consultations complement IOM’s thematically wider annual consultations with the broader civil society.

Meant as a two-way discussion beneficial to the joint work of IOM and humanitarian NGO partners, Humanitarian Consultations are jointly organized by IOM and the International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA), with the goal of strengthening effective and principled crisis response.
