WHFtalks is a monthly news digest that was launched on World Humanitarian Day to highlight the issues which will be covered by the World Humanitarian Forum.

It is read by over 20,000 subscribers including development and humanitarian professionals, government officials, NGOs, CEOs and foundations.  The digest covers issues including the status of refugees, gender parity, climate change, sustainable development, tech for good and new models for funding development, especially PPPs.

Our style is interactive and confident and yet it can be conversational. Our voice is that of an insider—from within the sector.
