Background

The PACT currently reflects all the commitments that were received in writing before or during the World Humanitarian Summit, which took place in Istanbul in May 2016. Further commitments will be added to the platform to sustain the spirit of dynamic collaboration and ensure continued progress in the advancement of the Agenda for Humanity. For more information on how to add new commitments, see the FAQ below.

Two types of commitments were gathered before and during the World Humanitarian Summit. Participants were invited to align themselves with 32 core commitments, derived from stakeholder consultations and anchored in the Agenda for Humanity.

In addition, stakeholders were invited to make their own commitments, either individually or together with other stakeholders. These individual or joint commitments are intended as tangible actions that support the implementation of a core commitment, or more broadly to help achieve the Agenda for Humanity.

PACT allows users to explore the core commitments stakeholders aligned themselves with and to read more about the individual and joint commitments that were made.

About the Individual and Joint Commitments

Participants at the Summit were also invited to make their own commitments in support of the Agenda for Humanity and its five Core Responsibilities. The commitments could be made individually or together with other stakeholders, and could be advocacy, policy, contribution, partnership, training, operational, capacity or financial in nature. The individual and joint commitments have been classified according to Core Responsibility and Agenda for Humanity shift. See here for more information on the Core Responsibilities and the shifts.
