Humanitarian disasters are happening more frequently and are affecting more people than ever. This requires humanitarian organisations to explore new tools and approaches to support people in crisis. What is required by the humanitarian sector to contribute toward lifting the most vulnerable out of crises between now and 2030?
During the panel session, Mr. Mark Lowcock (the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator of the United Nations,) and Jelte van Wieren (Director of the Humanitarian Aid Department of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs) will discuss the future of the humanitarian system.
