Innovative financing

Because fundraising as usual is not an option.

The financial gap in humanitarian aid and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is increasing and new innovative and social financing solutions are necessary attempts to close this gap.

Job postings on LinkedIn, articles, round tables, social media. Everybody is talking about innovative finance… But is it all talk and not enough action?

In this session, you’ll learn through case studies and get an insight into the theory and practices of innovative & social financing as used by the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement.

Who is it for?

Anyone who wants to increase their knowledge of how the #MeToo movement is relevant to our sector, particularly those in leadership positions.

Learning outcomes

  • Be motivated to further delve into the topic when you return to your organisation
  • Buzzwords will be demystified as you learn through concrete examples
