In recent years the geopolitical landscape has changed, with powerful effects on the context and practices of humanitarian action. Irregular migration, epidemics and conflict have stretched the capacity of the humanitarian system and are reshaping the relationships not only within it, but also with development actors, governments and civil society organisations, amongst others.
This discussion, drawing on The 4th edition of The State of the Humanitarian System (SOHS), looks back at what has shaped the humanitarian landscape from 2015 to 2017 and forward to the challenges ahead. It outlines humanitarian needs in the period, provides an overview of the resources that were available to address these needs, describes the current size and structure of the humanitarian system and presents an assessment of the performance of the system in addressing these needs.

“Transformation” is a much-used, and abused, term. Most commonly, it’s employed to simply describe a really big change. But looking at it as a type of change, distinct from “incremental” and “reform,” is critical to actually working for transformation.
Understanding the distinctions between these three types of change has deep implications for strategies and actions, especially within the context of systems change.
This webinar will focus on actions that support change, such as impact investors’ and entrepreneurs’, and how their impact can be enhanced through deepened understanding of transformation-specific tools and strategies.
The 2018 IPCC Special Report on Global Warming states that “limiting global warming to 1.5ºC would require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society,” necessitating transformation of the private (business), public (government), and social (non-profit) sectors.
This webinar will address the following questions:
- What is transformation in the context of systems change?
- What is the difference between the three types of change: incremental, reform and transformation?
- How do we achieve transformation?
- What strategies are most effective in achieving transformation?
