This event will start with opening remarks on the importance of intersectoral coordination in emergencies by Wafaa Saeed, Acting Director, Coordination Division, OCHA as well as a statement by Meritxell Relano, EMOPS, Deputy Director with UNICEF.
A panel discussion centered on ‘voices from the field’ will follow with structured questions around how they can all better contribute to coordination (co-lead, membership, partnership, localization). This will be facilitated by a National Cluster Coordinator with a diverse panel composed of local service providers representatives from Gaza, local government representatives from North-East Nigeria, a local NGO partner representative from BRAC, Bangladesh, and an INGO National WASH Cluster co-lead from Solidarités International in Burkina Faso.
The discussion will be followed by a pre-recorded ‘testimonial’ video from countries where the Field Support Team of the Global WASH Cluster has been deployed and how they supported National Humanitarian WASH Coordination Platforms by deploying cluster coordination, information management and assessment specialists for humanitarian crises. The presentation will be followed by a discussion and Q&A session. We look forward to you joining us!
