World Humanitarian Forum | New York 2021

World Humanitarian Forum (WHF) is the largest and most inclusive nonpartisan forum in humanitarian aid and international development. WHF brings together decision-makers and opinion-formers in the public, private and non-profit sectors, as well as the next generation of partnership-builders. Through its annual WHF in New York, WHF advances critical global discussions and transforms conversations into action, as well as provides a powerful forum to catalyse collaboration through shared-value approaches and social impact objectives.

The pandemic powerfully highlighted many issues and fragilities in the humanitarian aid and international development, delaying the significant progress that had been made through the previous decades and jeopardising the success of the Decade of Action for the SDGs. Whilst the pandemic struck, this has enabled us to take a step back and, in strong hope, innovate and build alliances with private sector, UN agencies, governments and INGOs to deal with the many humanitarian crises which are only increasing in scale.

In the World Humanitarian Forum New York 2021, prominent Heads of States, thought leaders, experts and activists from multiple sectors will come together to discuss these issues from different angles and create a Call to Action to tackle the global crises in the Year Of Hope as we build forward better.

The annual World Humanitarian Forum events advance critical  global discussions and transform conversations into action, provide a powerful platform to facilitate shared value collaborations  and achieve social impact objectives. The convenings provide the stage for the world’s greatest minds to speak of their expertise  and discuss their findings. Whether on broad subjects, specialized  tracks or concentrated niches, our guests find an extensive learning  journey into the world’s best practices.  

WHF is an international knowledge exchange platform at the  intersection of government, aid, development and innovation aimed  to improve the lives of millions in need.

Objectives

Objectives

World Humanitarian Forum New York 2021 will be a hybrid event, bringing together some of the greatest minds in humanitarian aid and international development to address how the world will, in the Year of Hope, not "building back better", as "back" was not good enough, but to build forward better.

Be part of the conversations on how we, together in hope, will shape the future for a better tomorrow.
