Goal 17: Partnerships for the goals

Goal 17 sets out to strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development.

HCRI is contributing to goal 17 through its collaborative partnerships with influential organisations such as UK-Med, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Save the Children. HCRI is able to make a meaningful impact in the field and reach many key humanitarian decision-makers through the partnerships.

Journal of Humanitarian Affairs

The new open-access Journal of Humanitarian Affairs is jointly hosted with The Humanitarian Affairs Team at Save the Children UK and MSF (Paris). It contributes to current thinking around humanitarian governance, policy and practice with academic rigour and political courage.

LEAP programme in humanitarian practice

The LEAP programme saw us partner with MSF and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine to deliver our bespoke higher education programme. LEAP offers varied and flexible courses, which seamlessly integrates world-class higher education into the career paths of humanitarians, with the intention of strengthening leadership within the sector.

Collaboration education

Our robust approach to humanitarian education has also meant we offer a well-established online programme in global health.

This programme has been developed in collaboration with the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). Our robust approach to humanitarian education has led to this teaching arrangement and we are pleased to contribute to IRFC staff and associate training programmes.

HCRI also deliver The Emergency Humanitarian Assistance (EHA) course, which is undertaken by professionals from NGOs, IGOs and policymakers.
