Introduction

The 33rd International Conference adopted eight resolutions in 2019. 

Resolution 6 “Act today, shape tomorrow”, “calls upon all members of the 33rd International Conference to act upon and to make their best effort to fully implement the resolutions of the International Conference and the individual and joint pledges to which they have subscribed”.

To encourage follow-up and facilitate implementation and reporting on progress, six thematic pages (one for each resolution) have been created, providing up-to-date information on implementation of these resolutions and related themes for Conference members.

The Conference organizers want to hear from States and National Societies on how they have been implementing their commitments from the 33rd International Conference. You can submit a short and simple progress report at any time by filling in the online reporting form. To access the form, please go to the page of the resolution that you would like to report on by clicking on the corresponding link below.

  • Who submits reports

    Resolutions
    The responsibility for reporting on resolutions lies with each Conference members.

    Pledges
    The responsibility for reporting on pledges depends on the type of pledge
    • Individual specific pledges are reported upon by the sole pledging party, as they describe a specific commitment with an individual plan of action.
    • Joint specific pledges require a joint report by all the pledging parties on their common efforts, as they describe a collaboration on a specific topic.
    • Open pledges, which are similar to petitions, are reported on by each pledging party individually as regards their respective implementation progress.
  • When to report on resolutions and pledges from the 33rd International Conference

    To enable dynamic reporting, the system will be open from July 2021 to 30 September 2023. Conference members can provide their implementation update anytime at their own convenience within this period.

    For this long period, Conference members can submit more than one report on the same resolution/pledge to demonstrate the advancement of their commitments. The reports will be differentiated by date. For example, Conference members can submit an update in 2021/2022 to show progress on implementation and then submit a final report on the final accomplishments in 2023.
     
    The information received will be compiled and posted on the website to show the progress made and, most importantly, the impact of the Conference outcomes on our daily humanitarian work. In addition, based on this information, a final consolidated report on the outcomes of the 33rd International Conference will be prepared for the 34th International Conference in 2023.
