The Forum will take place in the context of sharply increasing humanitarian needs, changing geopolitical realities and a shrinking humanitarian space.

Humanitarian needs have reached unprecedented levels, with over 300 million people around the world requiring lifesaving humanitarian assistance by mid-year 2022.

The war in Ukraine, the global rise in food prices, and the escalating consequences of climate change and natural hazards have exacerbated the situation even further. While the gap between needs and available resources continues to expand, the room for humanitarian action is under threat.

The 2023 edition of the European Humanitarian Forum will offer an opportunity to further strengthen the cooperation and partnership among countries affected by crises, donors, international stakeholders, the EU, and its Member States.

Through high-level discussions, political debates and brainstorming sessions, the Forum will serve to jointly put forward innovative, sustainable, and efficient approaches to address current challenges.

More information on the programme and the registration will be shared soon!
