“Navigate Uncertainty – Strengthen Humanity”
The 34th International Conference is scheduled to be held from 28 to 31 October 2024 at the International Conference Centre Geneva (Switzerland).
The unpredictability of world events, coupled with ever increasing humanitarian needs, calls for stronger humanitarian action. The Conference will provide a platform for dialogue among the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, and States party to the Geneva Conventions, to decide what needs to be done to strengthen the impact of humanitarian responses to new, ongoing and future crises.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is now embarking on its cycle of preparation for the 34th International Conference.
The Concept Note of the 34th International Conference was published in March 2023, under the banner Navigate Uncertainty – Strengthen Humanity”. The Concept Note kickstarts the preparation process for the upcoming Conference, outlining three broad pillars:
- Respect International Humanitarian Law
- Respond to Humanitarian Needs and Risks
- Enable Sustainable Locally-Led Action
Further details will emerge as the date of the Conference approaches.
