With the support of ECHO and in collaboration with other partners, the Connecting Business initiative has started developing a Guidance Toolkit that will help CBi Member Networks and other collective private sector platforms to engage (local) companies in addressing complex emergencies. Strengthened engagement of the private sector in these operating environments should be based on standards, guidance and good practices that have the potential of being replicated and scaled up. Furthermore, activities should be designed with the specific context (political and socio-economic environment) in mind.
This webinar will provide an overview of existing guidance, good practices and emerging trends in private sector engagement in complex emergencies. More importantly, participants will be invited to provide feedback on the draft outline of the Guidance Toolkit, share case examples and exchange lessons learnt in the area.
