European Humanitarian Forum

📅 21- 23 March 2022

The European Humanitarian Forum will take place in Brussels from  21 to 23 March 2022, in a hybrid format, with most of the events allowing for remote participation and engagement. It is organized by the European Commission and France in the framework of its Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The European Humanitarian Forum will gather policymakers, humanitarian partners, and other stakeholders, for more sustained dialogue on humanitarian policy and strategy.

”Humanitarian needs are at an all-time high, driven largely by the resurgence in conflicts, combined with the impact of climate change. Basic norms and principles are being challenged as rarely before, making the delivery of aid more difficult and dangerous”, Commission Communication on the EU’s humanitarian action, 2021

The Forum will offer a Team Europe perspective on humanitarian challenges and identify solutions and actions to address the unprecedented level of needs and constraints faced by humanitarian operators and beneficiaries. It will serve as an inclusive platform for strategic and open debates between the EU’s political decision-makers and the wider international humanitarian community.
