Humanitarian Health Seminar Series Session Four
December 6, 2017 at 12:00pm - 1:20pm
LECTURE: The Humanitarian-Development Nexus
Speaker: Xavier Devictor, World Bank
The UN Secretary General’s report entitled One Humanity: Shared Responsibility – asks us to “transcend the humanitarian-development divide” and change people’s lives by moving from delivering aid to ending need. Displaced persons should not be seen as a humanitarian “burden”, but rather as a development opportunity. Panelists discuss concepts and actions that address the humanitarian-development nexus.
