U.S. NGO Commitments for the World Humanitarian Summit

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit to garner global support for concrete actions and commitments to a global agenda for humanity, to better serve the most vulnerable people in the world.

Against the aspirational framing of the Secretary-General’s Agenda for Humanity, the undersigned U.S. NGOs make the following concrete commitments in our pursuit of effective humanitarian action that strives to ‘leave no one behind’. While not all commitments are relevant to the operations of each signatory, we stand together in a spirit of shared analysis of the challenges to humanity; the solutions needed to address them; and the systemic change that is within our power to catalyze.

If your organization wishes to sign on to these commitments, please contact Liz Bloomfield. The Commitments document will be updated after the summit.
