Online discussion being broadcast on YouTube:

Thursday 29 September, 14:00-15:00 BST, Overcoming Barriers to Humanitarian Access in Northern Ethiopia - Centre for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), Washington, DC

The resumption of armed violence in Ethiopia's northern Tigray region, where 5.2 million people are in dire need of humanitarian support, threatens to undermine recent gains in humanitarian access. A negotiated cease-fire had previously enabled an increase in the delivery of life-saving assistance to millions of civilians in need. Recent attacks, and fears of a renewal of the widespread conflict, are generating new needs and restricting the ability of aid agencies to respond. Humanitarian organizations require the full cooperation of all parties to allow unfettered access.

Please join the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda for an online critical discussion on this issue. The panel will feature Michael Dunford, Regional Director for Eastern Africa at the World Food Programme, and Abdullahi Boru Halakhe, Senior Advocate for East Africa at Refugees International. Panelists will explore how humanitarian and development agencies, and their donors, can navigate access constraints, return to an enduring cease-fire, and respond to the humanitarian needs in northern Ethiopia in a manner that reinforces–rather than undermines–stability. The event will be moderated by Kimberly Flowers, Senior Associate (Non-resident) of the CSIS Humanitarian Agenda and Global Food Security Program.
