10/13/2015. A lengthy consultation process will culminate in a meeting of the international community in Geneva from 14 to 16 October 2015 with the aim of defining the principles of tomorrow’s humanitarian action. The discussions will serve as a basis for the World Humanitarian Summit planned for May 2016 in Istanbul. The need to place the victims of disasters and conflict at the centre of all humanitarian action is a top priority.
