Humanitarian Action in Urban Context

A humanitarian response in an urban context must not only meet the immediate needs of affected populations, but also foster recovery and sustainable development in the aftermath of a crisis so that people and the city are safe, healthy, educated, economically empowered and able to cope with future shocks and stresses. This should include new models of funding, coordination and delivery – and a move away from sector-based and short-term objectives.
