The World Humanitarian Summit: priorities for reform inquiry


The International Development Committee is inquiring into priorities for the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit, in particular, focusing on what DFID's priorities should be for next year's Summit. The shortcomings of the global humanitarian assistance funding model and whether responses are sufficiently tailored to vulnerable groups and children.

The Committee has published a letter to the Rt Hon Justine Greening MP, Secretary of State for International Development, setting 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.
