Agenda for humanity: Annex to the Report of the Secretary-General for the World Humanitarian Summit

The World Humanitarian Summit must be a turning point in the way we address the challenges facing our common humanity. The community of “we the peoples”—Governments, local communities, private sector, international organizations and aid providers, and the thousands of committed and compassionate individuals assisting in crises and disasters every day—will only succeed if we work with a unified sense of purpose to end crises and suffering. The Summit must lead to genuine change in the way we deliver assistance and reduce risk and vulnerability; in our commitment to respecting, promoting and implementing international law; in the progress we make in reaching those furthest left behind; in the way we commit to collective outcomes and based on comparative advantage; in the way we resolve to reduce the fragmentation of international assistance into unmanageable numbers of projects and activities; and in the greater investments we make to prevent and resolve conflicts and human suffering.
