'' Since 1983, from the coordination ofAgen to the CHD ... it brings together NGOs, Humanitarian and Development, of all tendencies but characterized by a pragmatic and non-ideological approach of International Solidarity. ''

CHD aims at:

• Fostering coordination among practitioners throughout the humanitarian process: prevention, relief, reconstruction and development

• Gathering the ISOs which perform humanitarian, reconstruction and/or development-oriented actions in favor of the most vulnerable populations

• Representing these ISOs upon private and civil partners.

For CHD, the aim was first to ensure a better collective representation for humanitarian NGOs, especially within Coordination SUD, closely with those not belonging to CHD.

But also to promote exchanges among CHD members while sharing field experiences from emergency, restoring and development, as well as prevention actors.

As for now, CHD features 50 member NGOs. It is thus able to play a positive defining role.
Challenges and issues are still there in 2019: better deal with crises, strengthen populations’ resilience, their ability and empowerment, improve efficiency, and influence public policies, both in France but also in European Commission and the UN.
