World Humanitarian Summit 2016

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): United Nations Offce for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs - LUOGO: Instanbul - DATA: 26-27 maggio 2016

The United Nations Secretary-General will convene the first-ever global humanitarian summit of this scale in Istanbul in 2016. The goal of this summit is to find new ways to tackle humanitarian needs in our fast-changing world. The summit will focus on humanitarian effectiveness, reducing vulnerability and managing risk, transformation through innovation, and serving the needs of people in conflict. It will set a new agenda for global humanitarian action. This three-year initiative is being managed by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) is organising the summit. The summit will bring together the humanitarian community with other actors from the development, peace-building and peacekeeping spheres to work toward a coherent approach in the way humanitarian aid is delivered. Heads of State and Government, and representatives of civil society, the private sector, crisis-affected communities and multilateral organisations will attend the Summit.

 Preparations are taking place via one global and seven regional meetings, online consultations, and a September 2015 thematic meeting in Berlin, Germany. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is establishing a High-level Panel on Humanitarian Financing to provide recommendations that will help to frame the Summit discussions.
