The Forum will take place in the context of sharply increasing humanitarian needs, changing geopolitical realities and a shrinking humanitarian space.

The 2024 edition of the European Humanitarian Forum will be co-hosted by the European Commission and Belgium in its capacity as Presidency of the Council of the EU.

The event will offer an opportunity to further strengthen the cooperation and partnership among countries affected by crises, donors, international stakeholders, the EU, and its Member States.

Through high-level discussions, political debates and brainstorming sessions, the Forum will serve to jointly put forward innovative, sustainable, and efficient approaches to address current challenges.

More information

Similar to last editions, on top of the plenary sessions and panels, space will be given to Humanitarian Talks, which will complement the programme with hands-on discussions reinforcing the “concrete delivery” aspect of the Forum.

Proposed and led by partners and EU countries, they will offer an alternative space for humanitarian stakeholders to contribute and thematically complement the core agenda of the event.
