In May 2016, the international community will gather at the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) with the purpose of achieving “better, safer and more efficient aid” through the fulfilment of the Agenda for Humanity’s five Core Responsibilities.
With nearly 88 million people in need worldwide (UN, 2016), it has never been more important for humanitarian operations to fulfil these Core Responsibilities and be more cost efficient and effective in delivering aid.
This report highlights tangible changes that will make a real difference in humanitarian operations and overcome these challenges.
To do so, we pose six questions and provide recommendations for implementation based on humanitarian response case studies.
We hope these recommendations will be a starting point for debate, will stimulate dialogue and generate ideas among humanitarian stakeholders for improvements and encourage future research and strategic investments in humanitarian operations and supply chains. Most of all, we hope that the paper inspires the commitment from all humanitarian stakeholders to assist with improving humanitarian supply chains.
