The LEP acts as a global community of practice and offers a unique space for inter-network collaboration by bringing together a wide range of stakeholders united by common goals to improve effectiveness in crisis preparedness and response.

The HNPW 2020 was attended by more than 2,300 participants from 100 Member States and 450 organizations, representing UN agencies, funds and programs, Governments, military, and civil protection, NGOs, the Red Cross, and Red Crescent movement, private sector, and academia.
