IASC Principals' Statement on Post-World Humanitarian Summit Commitments, 2016

Published Date

Joint Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) statement on the post-World Humanitarian Summit period as agreed by the Principals during our last meeting from 7-8 June in Washington, D.C.

This statement indicates the IASC's collective commitment following the Summit to translate discussions on new ways of working together into action, strengthen alignment across the humanitarian-development nexus and promote a stronger role for local responders. It was agreed that the IASC would jointly focus more intensively on places of protracted need and prolonged conflict, as well as on crosscutting complex global thematic challenges like health crises or climate change. The IASC Principals will take these actions forward with immediate effect.
