In preparing for their meeting in New York City last May, the Sphere Board aimed at securing input from a variety of experts; a wide range of perspectives thus fed into their discussions about the .
17 experts were interviewed, mostly over Skype. They included heads of international and national NGOs, humanitarian directors, UN officials, academics, trainers and think-tank members.
All were asked to share their views on current humanitarian trends, on the main challenges and opportunities as well as the future of the sector – and, of course, on what role they foresee for the Sphere Project within that big picture.
The result is a series of seven-minute videos which offer a snapshot of the current thinking within the humanitarian sector.
The Sphere Project thanks the interviewees for generously offering their time and agreeing to have the edited version of their responses shared with the Sphere Project community.
