The ninth Global Humanitarian Policy Forum (GHPF) will be held virtually via Zoom on 9 – 10 December. This year, the GHPF will be co-hosted by the United Nations Foundation, bringing longstanding expertise in connecting people across industries and sectors to develop new ideas. Since 2012, the GHPF has convened members of the humanitarian community to anticipate future trends, launch new policy ideas and explore the practical challenges and opportunities of shifting policy to practice in crisis contexts. Over the past eight years, the GHPF has been at the forefront of shaping the international humanitarian community’s policy agenda.

This year’s Global Humanitarian Policy Forum examines the longer-term health, socio-economic, political, ethical, and security challenges exposed and aggravated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and concurrent crises.

A summary report on the GHPF’s key strategic conclusions and recommendations will be posted on the event’s website in January and shared with participants.
