Inter-Network Day
Wednesday 6 February 2019, the Inter-Network Day hosted a number of Cross-Network Sessions where participants actively engaged and collaborated with each other to collectively identify solutions and next steps to common challenges in humanitarian action.

Kicked-off by welcoming remarks by Michael Møller, USG of the United Nations and Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), and a keynote speech by Ursula Müller, ASG for Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator in OCHA, the opening session included a presentation of the State of the Humanitarian System (SOHS) 2018 by ALNAP, and a collaboration-exercise.

The Inter-Network Day was open for all and offered a unique opportunity to address current issues of relevance across the humanitarian sector.
