The g7+ General Secretary, Helder da Costa, and the g7+ Deputy General Secretary, Habib Mayar, participated in the the “Refreshing Humanitarian Action: Developing and reframing responses to meet new challenges” Conference in Jakarta in February 2016. This conference is part of a series of conferences organised by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) together with the Humanitarian Policy Group (HPG) at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI). These conferences aim to bring together policymakers with international and national humanitarian actors, and cover a range of issues, including: what humanitarian models work best, what degree of proximity humanitarian actors need and how those outside the formal system can best influence the debate on the future of humanitarian action. The second conference took place in Jakarta, Indonesia, in February 2016, following a first conference in Beijing, China, in October 2015. The conference summary can be found below.
