COMMITMENT TO ACTION

1. We commit to implementing a “new way of working” that meets people’s immediate humanitarian needs while at the same time reducing risk and vulnerability as proposed in the SG’s report “One Humanity: Shared Responsibility” (paragraphs 124-142) and its Agenda for Humanity, as a joint commitment towards core commitment 1 at the High-Level Leaders’ Roundtable at the World Humanitarian Summit on “Changing Peoples’ Lives: From Delivering Aid to Ending Need.”
