Rethinking how humanitarians negotiate. Today, with the world facing an increasing number of complex crises, the number of people in need of humanitarian support is higher than ever before, forcing humanitarians to rethink how to reach those who need them most. Opening in Geneva today, the annual World Summit on Frontline Humanitarian Negotiation hopes to bring together a range of actors to help find new ways to help humanitarians meet the challenges they come up against when trying to access the most vulnerable populations. We sat down with the organisers to learn more about the event.
