Priorities set out for first ever World Humanitarian Summit

29 April 2016

The first ever World Humanitarian Summit will take place in Istanbul in May 2016.

The International Development Committee is currently inquiring into the global humanitarian system. The Committee has written to the Secretary of State for International Development, Justine Greening MP, in order to contribute to the debate.

In the letter, the Chair, Stephen Twigg MP, sets out six priority areas for discussion at the Summit which the Committee feels will help the international community fulfil its responsibilities to deliver a more effective and efficient humanitarian system.
