Confronted with an alarming shrinking of the humanitarian space, it is necessary to better coordinate our efforts and enable humanitarian workers to continue fulfilling their commitment to assist populations affected by crises.
The European Humanitarian Forum will promote high-level discussions on humanitarian policies, strategies and operations. It will serve as an inclusive platform for strategic and open debates between the EU’s political decision-makers and the wider international humanitarian community.
The Forum will offer an opportunity to discuss together global humanitarian challenges and identify forward-looking solutions and concrete actions to preserve the humanitarian space, promote and ensure respect for international humanitarian law and address the record level of needs and constraints faced by both humanitarian actors and beneficiaries across the world.
The Forum will take place from 21 to 23 March 2022 in Brussels, Belgium, in a hybrid format. See program here.
