The European Humanitarian Forum is the first international gathering organised by the EU, aiming to shape the future of humanitarian assistance. It follows up the adoption (March 2021) of the latest Communication on the EU’s humanitarian action: new challenges, same principles.
The Forum will help identify forward-looking solutions and improve concrete lifesaving actions for the millions of persons in humanitarian needs.
The European Humanitarian Forum will be held with a view to promoting discussions on humanitarian policies, strategies and operations.
It will bring together EU and non-EU humanitarian bodies, UN agencies, non-governmental organisations, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement, international financial institutions, academics, think tanks, local responders and people affected by humanitarian crises.
The Forum will serve as an inclusive platform for strategic and open debates between the EU’s political decision-makers and the wider international humanitarian community where a European perspective is offered, tested and confronted.
The European Humanitarian Forum 2022’s edition, the first of its kind, jointly organised by the European Commission and the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, will address the unprecedented level of humanitarian needs and the constraints faced by both humanitarian actors and beneficiaries across the world.
