The first-ever World Humanitarian Summit is a global call to action by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The Summit will take place on 23-24 May 2016 at the Istanbul Congress Center (ICC) and the Lutfi Kirdar Convention and Exhibition Center (LKCC) in Istanbul, Turkey.
The 2016 World Humanitarian Summit will constitute a historically important step to address the common concerns and aims of the international community, on a par with important global meetings like the 1993 World Conference on Human Rights.
UN Secretary General Ban emphasized that Turkey’s important contributions, particularly in the humanitarian field at international, regional and national levels as well as Istanbul’s historical characteristics and logistical capabilities played a role in the decision to hold the Summit in Istanbul.
Turkey will hold the World Humanitarian Summit in consultation and cooperation with the UN and the governments interested in this subject. The Summit will also be organized with the participation of actors playing a role in the humanitarian field, including the media, civil society, academic institutions and the private sector.
Over 5,000 participants are expected at the WHS. Representatives will include Heads of States and Governments, crisis-affected communities, CEOs from the private sector, Heads of multilateral organizations, international and national NGOs, youth representatives, civil society, diaspora, civil-military, and academia.
