Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Weeks (HNPW) 2021
HNPW 2021

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the 2021 Humanitarian Networks Partnership Weeks (HNPW) will be held entirely remotely through online conferencing.

In previous years, the HNPW was held on five consecutive days, including the “Inter-Network Day”, considered as the Core Event of the HNPW, fostering collaboration among networks and partnerships to identify solutions to challenges of common concern.

This year, the remote nature of the HNPW will allow to span the Core Event over three weeks from 19 April to 7 May 2021, thereby reducing meeting overload and allowing more participants from around the world to attend the sessions of their interest. As in previous years, the Core Event will focus on inter-network collaboration and will begin and end with a formal opening and closing co-chaired by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

Note to our Partners: the registration process for HNPW sessions and exhibition stands has started! You can now register your sessions through the participating networks and partnerships by indicating the relevant network, partnership, or priority topic before 12 March. The contact details of each focal point have been previously communicated by email by the HNPW Secretariat. Please contact us at if you require additional information.

Note to Participants: the registration for participants will open in early/mid-March. Please stay tuned for more information about the HNPW program on this website.
