The Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Week is the annual event of the Leading Edge Programme. This week-long event brings together experts in crisis preparedness and response from a diversity of organizations (including Member States, UN agencies, NGOs, civil protection, the private sector or academia) and countries in a common space where discussions focus on identifying solutions to humanitarian challenges.
HNPW brings together well-established networks, such as INSARAG or UNDAC, and newly-created networks, some of them as a result of the World Humanitarian Summit, such as the Disabilities in Humanitarian Action or the Connecting Business initiative.
