Global Humanitarian Forum

Global Humanitarian Forum

Global Humanitarian Forum is an international humanitarian arena to foster dialogue and broker partnerships that strengthen the international community’s ability to address more effectively current and emerging humanitarian challenges. The forum has been founded by former United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan and is supported by Switzerland government to "bring together once a year major players in the humanitarian world and discuss visions on humanitarian assistance, humanitarian intervention" and share experiences on how to deal with the mega-disasters from tsunami to Katrina. [] "It seeks to generate increased investment in preparedness and prevention. All its work ultimately aims to be of benefit to the most vulnerable, particularly those living in least developed countries." []
