Advanced Training Program On Humanitarian Action (ATHA)

ATHA’s main objective is to foster innovative responses to current challenges to humanitarian protection by capturing new approaches and insights of practitioners through informal, professional exchange, such as tailored research on practitioner questions, interactive briefings on the ATHA portal, focusing on key questions of protection, closed, online workshops on issues of interest, open podcast exchanges. ATHA aims to enhance its own contribution to critical conversations around current practices by addressing growing challenges to the protection of civilians and the implementation of international humanitarian and human rights standards; strengthening relationships among professionals engaged in humanitarian action, especially at the local level, and fostering regional communities of practice around specific contexts.
