DIHAD : France is set to introduce its latest solutions at the largest humanitarian and development aid event, with a focus this year on the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) initiated by the United Nations


United Arab Emirates, 08 March 2022 7 French companies will take part in the 18th edition of the Dubai International Humanitarian Aid & Development (DIHAD) exhibition to be held at Dubai World Trade Center from 14 to 16 March 2022. This 3 day-event aims at enhancing the knowledge that humanitarian and development actors have about each other, in order to encourage collaboration and further reinforce the effective delivery of humanitarian and development aid worldwide.

Considered as a key stage where world’s humanitarian leaders gather and discuss on a specific agenda based on humanitarian crisis and its solutions, the 18th edition of DIHAD is scheduled under the theme“SDG 17, Partnerships and Co-operation for Sustainable Development”, the seventeenth and final objective of the 2030 Agenda adopted by the 193 UN Member States in 2015. This year’s focus couldn’t be timelier as strong international cooperation is needed now more than ever considering the impacts of the pandemic and the recent report made public by The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that warns about accelerated impacts of global warming. Thus, building partnerships and joining forces are needed more than ever, especially because they have always been instrumental to the success of international humanitarian actions and development assistance.

In line with this roadmap, the French exhibiting companies are fully bringing advanced concrete solutions to sharpen and accelerate global response to crisis-affected communities.  France brings on board a select delegation of exhibitors willing to empower Dubai Humanitarian Initiatives.

French humanitarian-focused entities will then be able to meet and pool with key decision-makers from NGOs, UN agencies, charities, and leading government agencies to provide operational support to emergency situations.
