AidEx encompasses a conference featuring inspirational thought leaders, an exhibition which is the largest of its kind in the world, training programmes, networking opportunities and a dedicated awards programme recognising individuals and innovations that truly inspire.

Each year over 2,500 representatives of the humanitarian aid and development community from over 65 countries attend an AidEx event. Attendees come from UN Agencies, the EU, Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, local and international NGOs, government and the private sector.

In the lead up to AidEx 2021, we will be running a series of webinars, the first of which will be taking place at 2pm (UK time) on 27th April 2021. This session will focus on: Aspects of host country impacts from accepting refugees - a Colombian Experience.

Colombia, newly amongst the World's 20 most vulnerable countries (per International Rescue Committee 2021 assessment), after many years of readily absorbing millions of refugees and displaced people from Venezuela, has received scant international recognition or financial support - to the significant disadvantage of its own people, already long-suffering. This webinar will consider the impacts of the continuing crisis upon the lives of the most impacted.
