Private funding of humanitarian work is changing from having been primarily targeted at natural disaster response, in 2015, the response to the conflict in Syria received the majority of reported private funds. With most private funding channeled through non-governmental rather than governments or multi-lateral organizations, understanding current developments in private funding flows and mechanisms has become more pertinent than ever for NGOs.

In the fifth session of the learning stream on humanitarian financing, jointly organized by ICVA and PHAP, private sector and NGO representatives will explore current trends relating to private funding for humanitarian NGOs. Participants will be provided with an overview of the different existing private funding mechanisms, with a particular focus on emerging trends such as private humanitarian innovation and Islamic social financing and key challenges for NGOs.
