CID Humanitarian Network
The Council for International Development facilitates the CID Humanitarian Network (formerly the NDRF), a standing committee of CID members that have an interest and involvement in international humanitarian response and emergency management issues.
The aim of the Humanitarian Network is to provide a collective civil society voice and forum for cooperation and shared learning for best practice in international humanitarian assistance for New Zealand NGOs. Humanitarian Network members work closely together during humanitarian emergencies to minimise duplication and ensure their response is as effective as possible.
The Humanitarian Network is an open forum and encourages non-CID members and observers, such as the Red Cross and the Ministry for Civil Defence and Emergency Management, to engage with the Humanitarian Network and contribute to the outcomes of the forum.

CID - Standards and Humanitarian Manager
Aaron has been involved in the development and emergency response/humanitarian sector since the late 90s. With a background in policy and operations, personnel and organisational compliance, training and human resources, Aaron has previously worked for MFAT’s NZ Aid Programme, and managed the International Aid Worker Programme for NZ Red Cross. Aaron has been part of humanitarian programmes in the Pacific, Timor-Leste, Ukraine, South Sudan, Sierra Leone, Lebanon, and Australia. Most recently, Aaron was based in Samoa where he supported capacity-building and surge support for human resourcing. Aaron has a keen interest in the supporting best-practise and impact, but also the important role that being personable and ‘enjoyment of work’ has not only upon staff well-being but also productivity within an increasingly stressful sector.
