Advancing the Agenda for Humanity
In his report to the 71st General Assembly on the outcomes of the WHS, former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for all stakeholders to deliver on their commitments and continue to advance the Agenda for Humanity. He presented four key steps to implement the Agenda for Humanity:
1. To sustain the spirit of collaboration, the former Secretary-General launched an online Platform for Action, Commitments and Transformations (PACT) on agendaforhumanity.org. This platform is a dynamic space to report on progress and showcase results, build engagement and create new partnerships
2. An annual synthesis report will be produced to assess collective progress and identify areas that may be lagging
3. A high-level stocktaking meeting within the next five years should assess progress against our goal of reducing humanitarian needs, risk and vulnerability, and identify gaps and new challenges
4. All stakeholders are encouraged to use relevant international, regional, national, and cross-cutting forums to hold dialogue in support of taking forward the Agenda for Humanity, turning the commitments into reality and making additional commitments.
The Agenda for Humanity Platform for Action, Commitments and Transformations
The Agenda for Humanity Platform for Action, Commitments and Transformations displays alignments with core commitments and individual and joint commitments that were received in writing by the World Humanitarian Summit secretariat. It also showcases some of the initiatives that were launched as part of the Summit process.
Stakeholders were also able to report on progress and showcase results, build engagement and create new partnerships. It also serves as a dynamic advocacy and implementation tool for all stakeholders in their efforts to advance the Agenda for Humanity and the commitments made at the Summit and to foster new commitments and partnerships.
