The track “Access to quality SRHR for people affected by conflict, fragility and crisis”will focus on empowering local organisations and users to improve access to SRHR services and information in challenging circumstances. We like to do justice to the complexities and diversities of different situations on the ground. Therefore, we have decided to frame the topic around “challenging situations, empowerment and ownership”. We will engage a wide community of interested parties via our platform on the Share-Net International website.
We will solicit people’s concrete experiences with challenges and best practices and critically assess partnerships between international and local institutions, with a focus on bridging the humanitarian-development nexus. Since in many countries the policy focus is shifting from donor dependency to domestic ownership and control, empowerment strategies will be reviewed and debated, leading to a series of pleas to transfer power much more (and more effectively) to local organisations and initiatives.
In our Conference, we will develop knowledge products linked to these debates, while keeping focus on SRHR for people affected by conflict, fragility and crisis.
