The WHF is the largest and most inclusive nonpartisan forum in humanitarian aid and international development. The WHF brings together decision-makers and opinion-formers in the public, private and non- profit sectors, as well as the next generation of partnership-builders. The annual WHF advances critical global discussions and transforms conversations into action, as well as providing a powerful forum to catalyze collaboration through shared-value approaches and social impact objectives.
