ITF at the World Humanitarian Summit

24.05.2016

On behalf of ITF Enhancing Human Security Ambassador Damjan Bergant, ITF Director, took part in the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit held in Istanbul, Turkey on 23 and 24 May 2016.

The Summit brought together humanitarian aid donors and recipients, representatives of a number of countries, governments, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, the business sector and other experts, and was organized following the initiative of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Agenda for Humanity served as the backdrop to the Summit, during which a number of topics, relevant to contemporary implementation of humanitarian assistance and a rising number of humanitarian challenges were discussed.

With mine action constituting a crucial part of humanitarian action, ITF was glad to participate at this important event. Furthermore, ITF is honored by Slovenia’s continued support, reflected in Prime Minister dr. Miro Cerar’s commitment to sustain its assistance to post-conflict societies, affected by mines and other explosive remnants of war. ITF as Slovenia’s tool in doing so will continue to protect conflict-affected population, particularly civilians, as well as aid workers by reducing the threat of landmines and other explosive remnants of war.
