Nations) will convene the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit in May in Istanbul Related News More people desperately need humanitarian assistance than at any time since the founding of the United Nations More warring parties are brazenly violating international humanitarian law More resources than ever are needed to meet sharply escalating humanitarian needs Yet we face the largest-ever funding shortfalls For these reasons and more I am convening the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit in May in Istanbul I am urging global leaders international organisations and others to commit to deliver more and better for those in greatest need There is no time to lose Climate change is affecting lives and livelihoods across our fragile planet Brutal and seemingly intractable conflicts violent extremism transnational crime and growing inequality are devastating the lives of millions of men women and children and are destabilising entire regions More people have been forced to flee their homes than at any time since World War II Around the world more than 125 million people need humanitarian assistance If they were all in one country it would be the 11th largest nation on Earth and one of the fastest growing Today’s complex challenges cross borders No single country or organisation can address them alone We need to restore trust in the ability of our national regional and international institutions to confront these challenges A sense of shared humanity must shape our politics and drive financial decisions In advance of the Summit I have set out an Agenda for Humanity as a framework for action change and mutual accountability It has five core responsibilities First leaders must intensify efforts to find political solutions to prevent and end conflict The enormous human and economic cost makes conflict the biggest obstacle to human development We must move from managing crises to preventing them Second countries must uphold the norms that safeguard humanity This means complying with international humanitarian and human rights law and stopping the bombing and shelling of civilian targets and areas It also means committing to national and international justice and ending impunity Third we must leave no one behind — and we must reach those who are furthest behind first This means transforming the lives of the most vulnerable including those living in conflict and in chronic poverty and those living with the risk of natural hazards and rising sea levels We must reduce forced displacement provide more regular and lawful opportunities for migration empower women and girls and ensure quality education for all We cannot meet the Sustainable Development Goals agreed by world leaders last September if we do not reach these people The fourth core responsibility is to move from delivering aid to ending need We need to close the humanitarian-development divide for good We must also anticipate crises not wait for them to happen We must strengthen local leadership and capacity reduce vulnerability and increase the resilience of people and communities who will always be the first and last responders in crises Fifth we must find smart and innovative ways of mobilising funds This will require diversifying and expanding the resource base and using a wider variety of financing tools I have proposed a new international financing platform with the World Bank to identify mechanisms to finance our response to protracted crises The Agenda for Humanity provides key actions and strategic shifts which the world requires to reduce humanitarian needs and contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals I urge world leaders to come to the World Humanitarian Summit committed to promote sustainable human progress and a
