Conference | When Disaster Meets Conflict: Lessons on Disaster Governance & Humanitarian Action
Join us on 13-14 October for the online conference of When Disaster Meets Conflict!
When disasters happen in a conflict setting, responses involve many state and non-state actors that try to reach affected populations.
- Who are these actors and do they work together?
- Who can affected communities trust to work for their interests?
- How are politics interfering in their actions?
These were some of the questions which directed research during the five-year research project When Disaster Meets Conflict. The research focused on the nexus between humanitarian aid and disaster governance in three conflict settings.
Case studies were done in high-conflict settings in Afghanistan, South Sudan and Yemen; in low-intensity conflict settings in Ethiopia, Zimbabwe and Myanmar, and in post-conflict settings in Nepal, Sierra Leone and Haiti.
