The Asia Pacific Humanitarian Leadership Conference is the first event of its kind in the region to debate and discuss some of the critical challenges and opportunities for the humanitarian system in the region and globally. Issues explored include: the impact of diversity and leadership in the humanitarian system; humanitarian ethics and principles in the region and beyond; forced migration and conflict, climate change and the concept of ‘humanitarian retreat’; agencies being ‘service providers,’ competition and collaboration, private sector response and self-interest as a barrier to change; the outcomes of the World Humanitarian Summit commitments on localisation and what it means for humanitarian practice and leadership.
