CIP Humanitarian Week | Social media toolkit
On 19th August, the international community marks World Humanitarian Day. This year’s commemoration, according to the United Nations, centers on demonstrating that “we stand shoulder to shoulder with the communities we serve, no matter who, no matter where, and #NoMatterWhat.”
It is an opportunity to pay a tribute to humanitarian workers who often work in perilous conditions centered around aid and worker security- and includes the release of the latest research, data and trends; and the #NoMatterWhat digital public awareness and advocacy campaign for people affected by crises to communicate the growing challenges humanitarians face and the vital importance of the principles that guide their work.
CIP has developed tools, innovations, products, solutions and partnerships that have seen root, tuber and banana crops play a key role in humanitarian settings as durable solutions to food insecurity, and livelihoods to communities across Africa, South America and Asia.
This social media toolkit provides key conversations to track, and key partner accounts and key messages to promote the event.
