Programme - European Humanitarian Forum 2024

Panel sessions

The EHF 2024 panel sessions will consist of moderated discussions among the wider humanitarian- development community, including EU institutions, EU Member States, third countries, partner organisations, local humanitarian actors, UN agencies, the Red Cross/Red Crescent family and academics.

Humanitarian Talks

Humanitarian Talks provide a space for discussion running in parallel with the EHF panels and an opportunity for focused exchange on concrete deliverables as well as on more specific humanitarian issues and crises that will not be addressed in the EHF24 panel sessions.

Humanitarian Talks complement the EHF programme with hands-on discussions, which reinforce the “concrete delivery” aspect of the Forum. Proposed and led by partners and Member States, they offer an alternative platform for humanitarian stakeholders to contribute and thematically complement the core agenda of the event.

The Talks will showcase initiatives and discussions driven by partners, Member States and practitioners.

Programme is subject to change. Timings are listed in Central European Time (CET), UTC/ GMT +2 hours.
