WASHINGTON—CARE, the global humanitarian and development organization, welcomes today’s agreement on a nonbinding UN migration pact aimed at ensuring the safe, orderly, and humane movement of people around the world. More than 160 countries signed the accord in Morocco, but the United States was notably missing, along with Australia and a handful of others.
Sheba Crocker, CARE USA's Vice President for Humanitarian Policy and Practice, said:
10 December, Katowice. Ministers arriving in Katowice will need extreme courage and conviction to make life-saving decisions if humanity is to be saved from the worst impacts of climate change, Oxfam and CARE International said today.
Despite it forming the key scientific input to this year’s UN Climate Change Conference, COP24, a handful of countries blocked inclusion of the report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), leaving it to ministers to ensure the report is put back into the heart of conference outcomes.
La COP 24 démarre ce week-end à Katowice en Pologne. C’est le moment pour les États de faire face aux incohérences de leurs actions climatiques. C'est l'heure de vérité pour l'accord de Paris. Voici les principaux enjeux de cette COP par Fanny Petitbon, l'une des expertes climat de l’ONG CARE, qui sera sur place pour suivre les négociations.
Efforts to save lives in times of crisis will be more effective if women are able to participate in humanitarian action, influence humanitarian decision-making and hold humanitarian efforts accountable.
Quite simply, more lives will be saved, and the dignity of people in times of crisis enhanced, if we take women’s participation, voice and agency in humanitarian action seriously.i

The United Nations (UN) has long highlighted the importance of addressing women’s rights concerns in relation to armed conflict and state-building and peace-building (SBPB) efforts.
However, the gendered nature of SBPB processes are often overlooked, despite the ways in which gender power relations are present in and can affect the success or failure of SBPB (Strickland and Duvvury, 2003).

This Sunday, 19th August, the global aid community marks World Humanitarian Day.
United Nations Secretary General António Guterres stated that the purpose of World Humanitarian Day is to "pay tribute to the government employees, members of civil society and representatives of international organizations and agencies who risk their lives to provide humanitarian aid and protection"’ The day will be marked by international organizations at headquarters of INGOs and by donor governments in capitals around the world.

Last week in Dakar (28 May to 1st June 2018) two workshops took place, organized respectively by the IASC Task Team on the Humanitarian Development Nexus based in Geneva, and OCHA and UNDP policy teams based in New York. 50 participants took part in the first workshop, including around 40 UN and 10 NGO participants. The second gathered around 80 participants from the UN, 20 from Governments, and 18 from NGOs.
The 2017 Grand Bargain signatory reports on Workstream 2 evidence some encouraging progress on meeting the 6 localisation commitments to provide more support and funding tools for national and local responders. But it is slow and much of the progress is in the initial first steps. 4 signatories did not report anything on this workstream.
Ambitious plans to reform the humanitarian sector are still failing to reach grassroots women’s rights organisations or be felt by women affected by crises. As donors, UN agencies and NGOs review progress on the Grand Bargain, this paper outlines recommendations to promote women’s leadership and participation across the humanitarian reform agenda.
The paper focuses on the three Grand Bargain workstreams: localisation, participation and cash. Key recommendations include:
CARE’s Organisational Commitment to Accountability
Rationale and methods to share information, speak out, and challenge impunity in cases of violence against humanitarian action
ATHA is pleased to share a new professional _Toolkit for Responding to Attacks against Humanitarian Action on the Policy Level._ The purpose of the Toolkit is to offer guidance to humanitarian actors for responding to violence against humanitarian action, in order to promote a more protective environment for the provision of humanitarian aid to civilians.
International aid agency CARE Australia is calling on governments, employers and workers to back a new global treaty aimed at curbing violence and harassment in the workplace.
The new measure is being debated this week in Geneva by members of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the global body tasked with protecting workers all over the world.
