News: World Humanitarian Summit

The World Humanitarian Summit has now ended. There will no doubt be plenty of commentary on what was or was not accomplished, but in the mean time, here is the Chair's Summary of what took place during the last two days. You can also read statements, watch video, and view photos on the WHS site. And you can review the WHS Facebook page, and the #ShareHumanity and #ReShapeAid hashtags for additional coverage.
