United Nations World Humanitarian Summit concluded in Istanbul
25 May 2016 Current Affairs: The United Nations World Humanitarian Summit concluded on 24 May 2016 in Istanbul, Turkey. The summit was organised by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA).

More than 50 heads of state and government attended the summit, which commenced on 23 May 2016. However, the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon voiced his disappointment at the absence of world leaders from G7 countries.

The World Humanitarian Summit’s main achievement was the Grand Bargain, which is the name for a set of 51 commitments to reform humanitarian financing to make emergency aid finance more efficient and effective.

In the summit, a New charter for Persons With Disabilities was also endorsed. The charter aims at improving the living conditions of persons with disabilities during emergencies.

World Humanitarian Summit : Ban Ki-moon, in his Five-Year Action Agenda, released in January 2012, set out his vision to develop a humanitarian system that was more global, accountable and robust.A key aspect of his agenda was convening a World Humanitarian Summit to help share knowledge and establish common best practices among the wide spectrum of organizations involved in humanitarian action.

The summit’s goal was to fundamentally reform the humanitarian aid industry to react more effectively to today’s many crises.

In November 2015, Antoine Gerard was announced as the head of the World Humanitarian Summit. The position was previously held by Jemilah Mahmood from April 2014 to November 2015.
