Global Humanitarian Policy Forum 2017: “Reaching for the future: Humanitarianism in 2030"
Other Formats
In the last two years, a range of global change agendas and processes have drawn attention to the scale of global challenges and their impact on increasing humanitarian needs, risk and fragility. The 2030 Agenda opened new opportunities for how development actors manage and finance issues of risk, fragility, and sustainability.

The World Humanitarian Summit also confirmed that a new and coherent approach for reducing needs and vulnerabilities was needed.

As reforms begin to make significant changes to the development sector, the Global Humanitarian Policy Forum will provide an opportunity to explore how the humanitarian sector is evolving, what is the scale and depth of change required, and how we can better work together toward the 2030 Agenda.

- Keynote address by the DSG, Ms. Amina Mohammed.

- The USG, Mr. Mark Lowcock, launches the first Annual Synthesis Report on Progress since the World Humanitarian Summit.

- High-level panel debate: The future is here: the scale of change required to the humanitarian sector to contribute toward the 2030 Agenda for people in crisis.”
