Communication is critical to an effective humanitarian response. Yet provision for managing multilingual communication and information is not yet routine across the humanitarian system. Looking at insights from people affected by the war in Ukraine, organizations supporting them, and professional linguists engaged in the response, this session will explore how the humanitarian system can better address language and communication challenges in this and future responses.
