CID Talk: Joint Appeals Mechanism with Chris Cattaway

Posted on 14 April 2021

Chris Cattaway joined us to talk about the Australian Joint Appeals Mechanism - the Emergency Action Alliance (EAA).

COVID has increased humanitarian crises globally and reversed 30 years of poverty reduction. But the 'humanitarian funding gap' is growing.

Joint Appeals mechanisms are one way of generating new funds. How could this work in New Zealand?

Chris led the design and the set-up of the EAA, which now has a membership of 18 Australian INGOs, and is supported by the Australian Department Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

He has over 25 years experience in humanitarian work, working in Africa, Asia and the Pacific. He has worked for many INGOs, as well as the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and DFAT.
