Overview of Humanitarian Principles and Standards for the Private Sector
Businesses around the world are increasingly involved in responding to humanitarian emergencies. This is a welcome development, because the private sector has substantial resources and knowledge that can be leveraged to make humanitarian response more effective, more efficient, and more responsive to the needs of affected people.

However, businesses aren't always familiar with the rules, principles, and standards that govern international humanitarian response. What does 'Do No Harm' mean? What guidance is available from the United Nations to ensure accountability to affected people (AAP) and protection against sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA)? What are the other rules that humanitarian responders need to be familiar with?

Join the Deputy Humanitarian Coordinator for Ukraine, Sebastian Rhodes Stampa, as well as the Inter-Agency focal points for AAP and PSEA, Rachel Maher and Gry Tina Tinde, in this unique opportunity to review humanitarian principles and standards for the private sector.

Although we will primarily be considering the Ukraine humanitarian response, the content is applicable for businesses responding to humanitarian crises anywhere in the world. Attendance is free and open to the public. This session will be conducted in English with Ukrainian and Polish interpretation available.

This webinar is brought to you by the Connecting Business initiative (CBi), a partnership of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP), in partnership with UN Global Compact.
