About this Session

The CCHN Specialized Session will explore the major challenges and dilemmas faced by frontline humanitarian organizations when negotiating access in Yemen. Drawing on the CCHN Field Manual on Frontline Humanitarian Negotiation, the Specialized Session will review a series of advanced negotiation tools and methods for humanitarian professionals who seek to negotiate access and deliver humanitarian assistance to populations in Yemen.
