Aim and Learning Objectives of the Forum
This workshop is aimed at enhancing strategies in humanitarian action, clarifying the role of Scouts during disaster response and benchmark best practices of NSOs following international principles and laws of humanitarian action.
At the end of the workshop, which will last three full days, participants will be able to:
Implement humanitarian action in their own NSOs following the international framework of humanitarian action such as international principles, sphere standards, and international humanitarian law.
Replicate, in part or whole, best practices of NSOs that have done effective humanitarian action during disaster response.
Understand different approaches in helping different people in various levels of society, starting from the most vulnerable or at-risk.
Adopt a National Humanitarian Action guideline or framework based on local disaster reduction framework (if any) and/or WOSM Humanitarian Action guidelines.
We expect to gather a maximum of 40 national and sub-national level leaders from at least 15 NSOs across the Asia-Pacific, engaged with humanitarian action, emergency response, disaster risk reduction, and others that are in relation to humanitarian action such as resource mobilization in challenging events.
Submission of their participants is until by 31 July 2023.
