Organized for the third time this year, the Connecting Business initiative Annual Event was convened again during the Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Week in Geneva on 5 February. 

All current Member Networks and other key partners came together to discuss collective private sector contributions to disaster preparedness, response and recovery.

It allowed participants to showcase their work over the past year, share lessons learned and identify further opportunities for collaboration: it was structured around two thematic sessions – one that explored enabling policy environments for public-private collaboration and one that focused on private sector engagement in manmade disasters.
