Diaspora and Humanitarian Support

43 diaspora organisations supported by the DEMAC initiative showed their intention to be full participants in enhanced humanitarian response by creating and signing up to 17 joint diaspora commitments as part of the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) in May 2016.

These commitments included providing a voice and delivering actions towards resolving root causes of conflict and current conflict situations, aligning humanitarian response activities with humanitarian principles; ensuring social inclusion and working holistically and meaningfully with all humanitarian response stakeholders towards efficient, inclusive and people-centered humanitarian action to support vulnerable people and communities.
