This session dealt with transforming the conventional humanitarian aid system towards a more refined assistance approach. It kicked off with two fundamental questions posted to the panellists: 1) Why is humanitarian aid necessary? 2) Where does it go and who decides where it goes? The session involved serious debate on the most effective ways to distribute humanitarian aid. Each panellist was questioned on whether or not the distribution of aid is fair and equitable, and whether we need proper political will to move it forward.
