In partnership with the Jordan Red Crescent Society, the ICRC organized on 11 and 12 December the third Humanitarian Forum under the title “Ethics, rules and thematic issues in field practices”. It brought together more than 100 humanitarian actors form local and international community-based organizations working with Syrian refugees and host community in Jordan.

Head of the ICRC Delegation in Jordan, Mr. Juerg Montani, said, “Humanitarian forums are part of the integrated efforts of the ICRC and its partners in the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement to share experiences and constant dialogue with local partners with the aim of highlighting the best field practices that contribute to alleviating the suffering of the vulnerable people and protect their lives and dignity”.

Meanwhile, President of the Jordan Red Crescent Society,H.E Dr. Mohammed Mitlaq Al-Hadid, said, “The humanitarian forum represents a platform to identify the challenges facing the humanitarian action and to recognize the activities conducted by community-based organizations”, adding that “In the International Movement, we seek to institutionalize the humanitarian action. We do believe that the presence of code of conduct in the field make the work more effective”.

During the two-day forum, several keynote speakers discussed four main themes related to the ethics and code of conduct, privacy and data protection, communication and information, as well as safety and secure environment.
