InterWorks has worked with various clients to develop symposia and other high-level fora for discussing current topics of interest in the disaster risk reduction and humanitarian response fields. InterWorks-designed and -facilitated symposia are well-structured, interactive and lead to useable outcomes for the organizations attending. These outputs may be lessons learned from the field, consensus documents, or roadmaps for organizational action. We employ a variety of methods including simulations, analysis of individual case studies, numerous brainstorming techniques and ranking exercises for genuine and transparent consensus–building processes. InterWorks partners have participated in or facilitated Symposia related to the Future of Humanitarianism, Emergency Management and Coordination, Contingency Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation of Humanitarian Response, and, Educational Planning.
