VOICE Statement ahead of the European Humanitarian Forum

The European Humanitarian Forum represents a  unique opportunity to focus on the growing humanitarian needs, and a key moment to discuss with the European Union (EU) , its Member States (MS) and the wider humanitarian community,  political and policy measures that could support and protect the most vulnerable and marginalised populations and to identify solutions. 

In this statement, VOICE calls on the EU and its MS to use the European Humanitarian Forum as an opportunity to:

  • Recommit and further strengthen their commitment to principled humanitarian aid
  • Review and adjust the approach of the EU towards counterterrorism and restrictive measures
  • Strengthen collective efforts to achieve the Grand Bargain (GB) 2.0 commitments
  • Confirm commitments to the effective implementation of humanitarian protection and IHL
  • Set up clear and measurable commitments to build climate resilience and adjust financial support and policies on greening humanitarian aid
  • Review progress on and recommit to the inclusion of gender considerations into humanitarian action and policies
