The world is in a critical juncture. In the last two decades, 218 million people each year were affected by disasters, at an annual cost to global economy that now exceeds $300 billion according to the UN.

Inspired and organised by the official event management company of the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul in 2016, the World Humanitarian Forum is a call for action. It is a premium two-day event that 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 to learn, network, supply and source. They engage in inspirational, thought-provoking, and future-focused dialogues that aim to shape the future of humanitarian aid and international development which will help to improve the lives of millions in need.

Our Logo, Our Ethos

Seven colours represent seven continents of the world as a reflection of our global vision. Each individual triangle symbolises the individual responsibility, shared vision, and collective action needed to create a better world and end global inequality. Triangles represent a person, sector, community or issue—alone, each are valuable, unique and important. But together, they tell a different story; community, collaboration and partnership.
