About the Agenda for Humanity

The Agenda for Humanity is a five-point plan that outlines the changes that are needed to alleviate suffering, reduce risk and lessen vulnerability on a global scale. In the Agenda, humanity—people’s safety, dignity and the right to thrive— is placed at the heart of global decision-making. To achieve this, global leaders and all humanitarian actors are called upon to act on five core responsibilities. Click on the icons below to learn more about each core responsibility.


Agenda for Humanity Transformations

The Agenda for Humanity advocates for a number of strategic and normative transformations under each core responsibility that are necessary in order to make it a reality. The individual and joint commitments made at the Summit will support the implementation of these strategic transformations.

 One Humanity, Shared Responsibility

The five Core Responsibilities and the Agenda for Humanity are part of the Report: One Humanity, Shared Responsibility which guided the overarching framework of the World Humanitarian Summit. At the Summit 180 Member States of the United Nations, over 700 local and international NGOs, the private sector and other stakeholders demonstrated overwhelming support for the Agenda and announced thousands of commitments to turn it into reality. More than a dozen initiatives, partnerships, platforms and alliances were either newly developed or strengthened through the World Humanitarian Summit process and will help implement the Agenda for Humanity.
