The world is witnessing the highest level of human suffering since the Second World War. This is why, for the first time in the 70-year history of the United Nations, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has convened the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul on May 23 -24.
The Summit has three main goals:
1.) To re-inspire and reinvigorate a commitment to humanity and to the universality of humanitarian principles.
2.) To initiate a set of concrete actions and commitments aimed at enabling countries and communities to better prepare for and respond to crises, and be resilient to shocks.
3.) To share best practices which can help save lives around the world, put affected people at the center of humanitarian action, and alleviate suffering.
