Introducing WHF Webinar Series

WHF Webinar Series has been designed to bring together individuals, companies and organisations to discuss the critical issues shaping the humanitarian and international development agendas today and tomorrow.

While we cannot come together in physical gatherings, we will analyse the themes from the World Humanitarian Forum and co-located events that drive the international agenda today and tomorrow. In these difficult times, we will not stop our aim of continuing to connect a diverse range of opinions, backgrounds and efforts.

WHF webinar series champions cross-sector engagement that enables continued dialogue, giving the audience an opportunity to interact with world leaders and though influencers.
