Event agenda

A rich agenda informed by humanitarian negotiators’ real-life challenges

The Summit agenda is shaped by contributions of hundreds of frontline humanitarian professionals from around the world, who are sharing their own challenges and dilemmas and identifying key topics for discussion.  

You will have the opportunity to develop your negotiation skills by joining several sessions led by negotiation experts from the private sector, academia, think tanks and research institutions. For the first time, the World Summit will also feature a negotiation simulation run by experienced frontline negotiators from around the world.

Between March and September 2022, the CCHN held a series of local meetings with the members of our community of frontline negotiators across five world regions, gathering their reflections and feeding their expertise into the Summit. The agenda was then developed according to their guidance. 

By joining the CCHN World Summit, you’ll be able to…

  • Shape the global debate on the role of humanitarian negotiations to improve humanitarian aid.
  • Gain access to negotiation tools, resources and capacity-building opportunities for your team, organisation and partners.
  • Discover the latest cutting-edge research, best practices and innovations in humanitarian negotiations. 
  • Get answers to critical issues when it comes to negotiating on the front lines or finding solutions to humanitarian challenges.
