STORYLINE
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told member states on Monday (4 Apr) that the World Humanitarian Summit is “a unique opportunity to generate the momentum for change and send a message of solidarity and support to the 125 million people who are dealing with immediate crisis.”

The UN chief underlined, “Istanbul is this opportunity. History will judge us by how we use this moment.”

He also announced a series of roundtable meetings focused on specific parts of the agenda, such as conflict prevention, refugees, climate change, and humanitarian investment.

Ban said, “the best way to achieve bold, courageous change is to make sure that leaders are there to deliver it. That is why I will convene a Leaders’ Segment for Heads of States and Governments on day one -- May 23.”

He added that the voluntary and non-binding proposal to adopt so-called Core Commitments needed imaginative input from leaders and governments. Ban concluded opening remarks by saying the Summit was "not an end point" but needed to be seen as the beginning of a "new era of international solidarity."

The Turkish delegate, Levent Eler, reiterated that Turkey – WHS host country- is fully engaged and committed to make the World Humanitarian Summit “a real success for the sake of our common humanity.”

The first World Humanitarian Summit will be held in Istanbul on 23 and 24 May 2016 and will bring together governments, humanitarian organizations, people affected by humanitarian crises and new partners including the private sector to propose solutions to the most pressing challenges and set an agenda to keep humanitarian action fit for the future.
