The World Humanitarian Action Forum (WHAF) is an initiative, organised by several humanitarian and development organisations, that aims to encourage effective collaboration with local actors to better serve affected communities.
WHAF 2019 brought together over 480 delegates representing local and national NGOs, INGOs, Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, networks, philanthropists and academics from across the humanitarian, development and peace-building sector for a two-day forum in Istanbul on 15-16 October 2019.
This was the second Forum, following the successful WHAF 2017 Forum in London and coincided with UN World Dignity Day on 16 October. The 2019 Forum focused on the central theme of ‘Dignity in Humanity’ and combined a series of parallel solution-focused roundtables on four vital humanitarian themes – Finance, Localisation, Conflict and Resilience.
We are grateful to our 53 partners, that made up the Advisory Group and the four Steering Groups, for putting together WHAF 2019.
