World Humanitarian Summit Brings Global Actors Together For Zero Hunger Side Event


The World Humanitarian Summit, the first forum of its kind, will gather the international community together in a bid to address the growing humanitarian crisis and commit to leaving no one behind.

The pledge to leave no one behind is the central theme of the 2030 Agenda and places a new obligation on us all to reach those most vulnerable to conflict, disaster, vulnerability and risk first.

Establishing common goals, strategic frameworks, and clear, quantifiable, and measurable targets is the first step for global actors to transcend their traditional silos and work together to reach meaningful, collective outcomes.

It is in this spirit that the Government of Ireland, with Action Contre La Faim (Action Against Hunger), CFS, FAO, IFAD, OCHA, UNICEF, UNSCN, WFP, WHO and the Zero Hunger Challenge will come together to spearhead the challenge of shifting from emergency food distribution towards the deliberate reduction in food insecurity as a pre-emptive means of crises preparedness instead of post-crises response.

In order to change the way we address global humanitarian need—from post-conflict interventions to increasing preparedness and reducing vulnerability—we will need more than a top-down approach.

We will need voices from the global community to speak up in solidarity for a shared humanity that is free from hunger.
