Message from Executive Director

Narrow the gap

It was very important to unite during the UNHCR­NGO Annual Consultations in June around a common resolve to ‘put people first’. At the same time, it is a telling reminder of the gap that exists between our words and deeds. After all, putting people first should be an obvious starting point of humanitarian action. Let’s make sure we take forward the result of these consultations to ensure ‘Putting People First’ becomes the unquestionable cornerstone of our joint actions.

Message from Executive Director

Putting People First – “being and becoming” Our humanitarian community agrees that “change in the humanitarian system must place people and communities at the heart of response, and empower them to lead and shape emergency response”. “Putting People First” is the theme of the 2018 UNHCR Annual Consultations with NGOs.
