Jan Eliasson (UN Deputy Secretary-General) - World Humanitarian Day 2016
Statement by United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson at the World Humanitarian Day event in New York (19 August 2016).

World Humanitarian Day (WHD) is held every year on 19 August to pay tribute to aid workers who risk their lives in humanitarian service, and to mobilize people to advocate for a more humane world.

2016 Theme: One Humanity
Under the overarching theme of ‘One Humanity’, WHD will promote how the world came together in Istanbul around the Agenda for Humanity, and how the commitments made at the World Humanitarian Summit will help the 130 million people around the world who need humanitarian assistance to survive. One Humanity speaks to how our shared human experiences bind us across divides, and create a common responsibility to demand action for the most vulnerable and at risk of being left behind.
