This panel aims to shift the narrative surrounding humanitarian action learning by moving away from past failures and focusing on success stories and good practices. By highlighting specific instances of positive experiences in the humanitarian sector, we seek to create a solution-focused paradigm that addresses new realities, protracted crises, and intersecting challenges. Our goal is to inspire the development of sustainable solutions for challenging contexts by drawing on elements of past successes while considering the unique aspects of current realities. Through this approach, we aim to foster a renewed perspective that leverages the lessons learned from successful humanitarian interventions, ultimately contributing to more effective and impactful actions in the future.

Areas of Emphasis:

1) Innovative Program Design: Showcasing successful designs that address the complex challenges of protracted crises and integrate sustainable development principles.

2) Local Empowerment and Ownership: Highlighting initiatives that empower communities, fostering resilience and ownership in shaping sustainable responses.

3) Collaborative Partnerships: Examining successful coordination among humanitarian actors, states, organizations, and stakeholders for sustainable outcomes.

4) Technology and Innovation: Showcasing how technology, including AI and data analytics, enhances sustainable responses and resilience.

5) Climate Change and Environment: Exploring climate change's impact on crises and environmentally conscious practices in humanitarian responses.

6) Nexus Thinking and Integration: Investigating the potential of combining humanitarian, development, and peace perspectives for sustainable solutions.

7) Humanitarian Education: Discussing successful methods and evidence-based pedagogical approaches (such as problem-based learning, simulations, case studies and others) to foster crucial competencies of future professionals.
