Start Network at the World Humanitarian Summit

The World Humanitarian Summit offers an incredibly important and unique opportunity to bring much-needed change to a sector facing tremendous challenges. 

The Start Network aims to use this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a route for change, to explore the concrete actions that we must take to transform humanitarian response, and to ultimately ensure that we connect people in crisis to the best possible solutions.
