Report Launch and Panel Discussion: The role of children and young people in humanitarian action (from preparedness to recovery)
Join Plan International as we bring together media, development and humanitarian professionals to discuss how we can increase and improve meaningful communication and engagement with children and youth in humanitarian settings, ensuring we are working with and for girls and boys in preparedness efforts and in response to emergencies.
Please join us for this special event on Friday, 17 February from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Thailand on 518/5 Ploenchit Road.
The event will coincide with the launch of Plan International’s report: Communicating with Disaster-affected children: a case study from the 2015 Nepal earthquake.
A panel discussion will bring together the perspectives of four practitioners as they discuss the most effective, innovative and safest ways to engage children and youth before, during and after an emergency, ensuring that their voices and opinions are being heard and incorporated into our programming.
Opening: Senait Gebregziabher, Regional Director of Plan International Asia will launch the report “Communicating with Disaster-affected Children” and present key findings and recommendations.
Panel Discussion Participants: Drawing on their own experiences, panellists will discuss learnings, challenges and share best practices from the Asia-Pacific region.
