STORYLINE
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged the international community “to commit to halving the number of internally displaced people by 2030.”

At the opening today (23 May) in Istanbul of the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit, which featured creative performances by renowned stars and activists including Inna Modja, Victor Ochen, Forest Whitaker, Ashley Judd and Daniel Craig; Ban also urged leaders to find better long-term solutions for refugees and displaced people, based on more equal sharing responsibilities.

Since he had proposed the Summit four years ago, the urgency had only grown, with a record 130 million people in need of aid to survive alongside growing funding shortfalls.

Ban also said “we must invest in humanity. We need to provide more direct funding to local people and communities, fix the persistent humanitarian funding gap, and invest in building stable and inclusive societies.”

He noted that this Summit’s Agenda for Humanity, the document he recently issued to guide discussions and action, is based on three years of consultations with 23,000 people in more than 150 countries.

Also speaking at the opening event, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed hope that the Summit would lead to auspicious outcomes for hundreds of millions of people struggling to sustain their lives.

He said “I would like to proudly express that Turkey is the country that hosts the highest number of refugees, and as long as this threat continues, be it from Syria or Iraq, regardless of whoever, we will never, ever close our doors, our borders to people and to humanity.”

The Turkish president stressed that his country would not stop pursuing “blood-shedding dictators” and will ensure that crimes against humanity do not go unpunished.

Erdogan added “everybody should assume responsibility from now on. First of all, we need to review the global aid system with a perspective that places the human being in the centre.”

Over the next two days in Istanbul, the World Humanitarian Summit is bringing together stakeholders who have vested interest in improving the global humanitarian system, including more than 65 heads of State and Government as well as leaders from the public and private sectors.
