UN says Istanbul humanitarian summit “once in generation” chance




The world’s first humanitarian summit in Istanbul next week is a “once in a generation” chance to alleviate suffering by improving the global response to crises, senior UN officials said Sunday.

The two-day UN-backed World Humanitarian Summit which opens Monday brings together some 65 heads of state and government with leading NGOs to find a concrete strategy on countering the worst humanitarian crises since World War II.

“This is a once in a generation opportunity to to set in motion an ambitious and far-reaching agenda to change the way that we alleviate and prevent the suffering of the world’s most vulnerable people,” UN Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Stephen O’Brien told reporters ahead of the meeting.

He said that the summit differed from other such events as it was not aimed as winning financial pledges but a comprehensive strategy for dealing with crises such as the estimated 60 million people displaced around the world.

UN Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson said that the meeting aimed to tackle the “root causes” of crises emanating from conflict, as well as climate change.

“We spend so much on dealing with the late causes of conflict but very little on prevention,” he said, urging a focus on the early rather than the late stages of the conflict.

Eliasson said the summit should also see a “strong call” for respect of international humanitarian law, which has badly decayed with attacks on schools and hospitals in the conflicts in Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen.

“We have seen a lack of respect for international humanitarian law which is causing huge damage in the world.”

The summit is the result of years of planning but there has been criticism that its actual outcomes could fall well short of its lofty ambitions.

Medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is boycotting the event, saying it risked being just a “fig leaf” for the world’s failure on humanitarian action.

“I regret very much that they came to that decision,” said Eliasson.

“One of the main purposes of this conference is our outrage against violations of international humanitarian law,” adding he hoped the “convictions they (MSF) stand for” would come out of the meeting.

  6. “once in a generation opportunity”.. Like Rahm Emanuel the mossad/mafia/zionist says, ” Don’t let a good crisis go to waste”. Send in the NGO’s so they can PROFIT off their sorrow and pain….vampires and vultures.

    and just what is International Humanitarian Law?

    International humanitarian law

    International humanitarian law (IHL) is the law that regulates the conduct of war (jus in bello). It is that branch of international law which seeks to limit the effects of armed conflict by protecting persons who are not participating in hostilities, and by restricting and regulating the means and methods of warfare available to combatants.

    Since when did those who think they are ‘elite’ ever give a damn about the effects of their wars or protecting the people? They didn’t – they seem to be worried about the ‘combatants’ aka Those who are being harmed, harming those who are coming with an agenda all their own, and when they send in their NGO’s, they will probably want them to be protected!

    Global NGO’S

    Top 100 NGO’S

    oh look at that Clinton Health Initiative #19 – wonder if they’re still hooked up with the Michael Milken Group

    # 6 Ceres
