Practicing humanitarian diplomacy: an introduction Humanitarian diplomacy guidance
This guidance provides the fundamental considerations and steps to designing humanitarian diplomacy activities. Additional guidance documents will be produced which will provide separate thematic and tailored advice on the basis of identi ed need, and designed to support the membership with its practice of humanitarian diplomacy. The intended audience for this guidance is volunteers and paid staff that are managing programmes and delivering services to vulnerable people, and with limited experience in engaging in the practice of humanitarian diplomacy. This guidance should be taken into con- sideration as a part of the planning process for developing and managing pro- grammes and services, as humanitarian diplomacy is a responsibility for all National Societies.
