In 2016 the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon hosted the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) on the 23-24 of May in Istanbul, Turkey.  The Summit was held at the highest level and brought the global community together to reaffirm our solidarity with people affected by crises, and our collective commitment to humanity. As a recommendation from the INSARAG Global Meeting in 2015 and the Steering Group meeting in 2016, the INSARAG Secretariat in OCHA Geneva along with a strong push from our global chair, Ambassador Manuel Bessler, successfully ran a side event in the Summit.
