The 11th DIHAD Held a Forum Themed "Woman and Aid"


From March 25th to 27th, the 11th DIHAD (Dubai International Humanitarian Aid & Development Conference & Exhibition) was held in Dubai. DIHAD aims to contribute to the further enhancement of technically sound and principled international humanitarian and development assistance. And this time, DIHAD tried to achieve its goal by mainly dealing with the impact of humanitarian crises on women.




During the event, Princess Haya bint Al-Hussein said in her speech that it is highly suggested that we should approach women as they are part of families and communities with values and traditions but not isolate them. Moreover, according to the interview done by Arabnews.com, Ertharin Cousin, the Executive Director of the UN World Food Programs, showed his interest in the negative influence of massive war and disasters on women’s safety, food security, health and education. “This event has become a global umbrella to promote and improve the mechanisms of the humanitarian response to crises and disasters that arise in various parts of the world”, said Sheikha Lubna Al-Qasimi, the Minister of International Cooperation and Development, expressing confidence in the overall process of DIHAD. 

DIHAD has been successfully held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President, Prime Minister of United Arab Emirates, Ruler of Dubai, and officially supported by the United Nations, the UAE Red Crescent Authority, et cetera. The 12th DIHAD will be held from 25th to 27th of March, 2015. Further information is available at the official website of DIHAD.
