WORLD HUMANITARIAN SUMMIT

Humanus is a registered participant in the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit organized by the United Nations, and being held in Istanbul, Turkey on May 23 and 24, 2016.

The United Nations Sectary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for a global response to address the suffering of millions of women, men and children affected by humanitarian crisis. The first-ever World Humanitarian Summit is our opportunity to confront these global challenges head-on and generate greater global leadership and political will to end conflict, alleviate suffering and reduce risk.

MAIN PROGRAMME

The main Summit programme will include High-Level Leaders' Roundtables on priority action areas outlined in the Secretary-General’s Report; Special Sessions on specific thematic areas; and a Summit Announcement Plenary for Member States and other stakeholders to announce action commitments.

SIDE EVENTS

A number of side events will be available to different stakeholders to organize briefings, seminars, workshops and panel discussions, in parallel to the World Humanitarian Summit main proceedings. Events with multi-stakeholder co-organization will be prioritized in the selection process. 

EXHIBITION FAIR

The World Humanitarian Summit Exhibition Fair, held in the ICC, is dedicated to showcasing the work, products, and programmes of governments, organizations, agencies, companies, and other institutions in support of humanitarian action.

INNOVATION MARKETPLACE

The Innovation Marketplace will showcase the practical applications of innovations, new or improved products, tools, services and processes that contribute to effective humanitarian action. Special emphasis will be placed on small-scale innovations with high-impact from under-represented communities.
