International Development Committee
The International Development Committee is inquiring into priorities for the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit, in particular, focusing on what DFID's priorities should be for next year's Summit. The shortcomings of the global humanitarian assistance funding model and whether responses are sufficiently tailored to vulnerable groups and children.
The Committee has published a letter to the Rt Hon Justine Greening MP, Secretary of State for International Development, setting out six priority areas for discussion at the summit which the Committee feels will help the international community fulfil its responsibilities to deliver a more effective and efficient humanitarian system.
Evidence given by George Graham, Head of Conflict and Humanitarian Policy and Advocacy, Save the Children, Ann Foley, Head of Disaster Risk Management, Plan UK, and Mike Noyes, Head of Humanitarian Response, ActionAid UK; Professor Mukesh Kapila CBE, Professor of Global Health and Humanitarian Affairs, University of Manchester (at 11.00am).
Evidence given by Rt Hon Andrew Mitchell MP, Former Secretary of State for International Development, and Rt Hon Clare Short, Former Secretary of State for International Development.
Evidence given by Bruno Lemarquis, Deputy Director, Crisis Response Unit, United Nations Development Programme, Christina Bennett, Research Fellow, Humanitarian Policy Group, Overseas Development Institute, and Markus Geisser, Senior Humanitarian Affairs and Policy Adviser, International Committee of the Red Cross; Rt Hon Desmond Swayne MP, Minister of State, and Dylan Winder, Head, Humanitarian Policy and Partnerships, CHASE, Department for International Development (at 11.15am).
