The Platform traditionally alternated between a global meeting held in Geneva and a field-based meeting taking place in a regional hub (Nairobi and Amman in the past). Recognizing the need for the Platform to get closer to those engaging in daily work within the Country Based Pool Funds (CBPF) and gather valuable experiences and points of view for the global policy discussion, the co-chairs of the Platform, OCHA and NRC, supported by the core-group (IRC, Oxfam, Welthungerhilfe, Nile Hope tbc), have decided to pilot a country-specific approach.
South Sudan was chosen as the location of the first country-based dialogues Platform given the interesting profile of the Country Based Pooled Fund in terms of total volume, number of national, international, and UN partners, size and number of projects funded, and the relevance of the humanitarian response.
The OCHA-NGO CBPF Dialogue Platform provides NGOs with a chance to actively engage in an open dialogue with OCHA at a strategic level, and complement the day-to-day interactions taking place in the field. Whether you are a current or prospective NGO partner, this event is for you!
