The World Humanitarian Forum (WHF) launched in London, April 2019. The Forum's aim is to provide a pedestal for the world’s greatest minds to speak of their expertise and discuss their findings within the humanitarian sector. It is a global call for action.

Inspired and organised by the official event management company of the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul in 2016, the World Humanitarian Forum brings together prominent leaders from the public and private sectors, as well as international thought leaders and pioneers from global aid and international development communities.
