Global Symposium +5 ‘Information for Humanitarian Action’ will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from the 22 – 26 October 2007 at the Palais des Nations.

Its purpose is to bring together a community of practice on humanitarian information and shared knowledge. This important event will bring together 250 humanitarian information representatives from the international community to build upon a process that began five years earlier. In 2002, the Symposium on Best Practices in Humanitarian Information Exchange, held in Geneva, endorsed the Statement on Best Practices for Humanitarian Information Management and Exchange. The principles flowing from the statement have been further developed in a series of regional Humanitarian Information Network workshops in Bangkok, December 2003, Panama City, August 2005, and Nairobi, May 2006.
