The EC and its humanitarian partners: collaboration that saves lives

For the fourteenth year in a row, the European Commission convened its humanitarian partners for their Annual Conference in Brussels on 18 and 19 October. More than 350 participants from the partner organisations were expected, making this a gathering of the world's top humanitarian professionals.

The Annual Conference was themed "ECHO & Partners: helping people together". The event provided an opportunity to discuss common priorities and the increasingly complex humanitarian challenges. The difficulties of delivering aid in conflict zones and the growing rate of attacks on humanitarian workers were also on the agenda, as were disaster trends and innovative responses, the coordination among multiple humanitarian agencies and future food and nutrition challenges. An exposition of suppliers for humanitarian agencies called AidEx, featuring water purifiers, emergency tents and logistical support was held in Brussels from 19 to 20 October (see the CTA video interview with Rachel Lauvik here).
