VP Faure at the 2016 world humanitarian summit


Vice-President Danny Faure is representing President James Michel at the first World Humanitarian Summit being held from May 23-24, 2016 in Istanbul, Turkey.
The aim of the summit, an initiative which was conceived by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, in 2012, is to map out a forward-looking humanitarian agenda for the future, that is more effective and inclusive and which addresses the significant challenges facing a rapidly changing world.
The agenda will focus on five core responsibilities: global leadership to prevent and end conflict; uphold the norms that safeguard humanity; leave no one behind; change people’s lives – from delivering aid to ending need; and invest in humanity.
Consultations at the summit will provide opportunities for all actors to discuss challenges and emerging trends, identify recommendations and develop a plan of action for the future of humanitarian efforts.
The vice-president’s delegation comprises high level officials from the Ministry of Social Affairs, Community Development and Sports; the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Risk and Disaster Management.
