The WHAF 2020 Summit will launch and set the scene for the Aid Re-imagined Initiative, addressing the question of what issues specifically and realistically need to be addressed within the aid sector to make it fit for purpose.

Some of the topics include:

  • The future state of humanitarianism – what should aid look and feel like?
  • The decolonisation of aid – shifting the power and political balance
  • Local coordination and representation – true partnerships and capacity exchange


Over the next 12 months there will be a series of regional summits and a research study which will culminate in the WHAF Summit 2021 where the findings will be shared with policy makers, donors and other key stakeholders in the aid system.
