    After the World Humanitarian Summit: Better Humanitarian-Development Cooperation for Sustainable Results on the Ground

    The World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) called for a step change in how humanitarian action is conceived, planned, implemented and monitored – and by whom. The United Nations Secretary-General (SG) has set out a clear vision to ‘Change people’s lives: from delivering aid to ending need’ as one of five Core Responsibilities in his Report for the World Humanitarian Summit ‘One Humanity: Shared Responsibility.’ The report notes that Agenda 2030’s commitment to leaving no one behind and reaching those furthest behind first, including its specific references to people affected by humanitarian emergencies, creates a common framework under which both humanitarian and development actors can work together to ensure the safety, dignity and ability to thrive for the most vulnerable and at risk populations.
