Capability Statement: Youth in Humanitarian Action

Launched at the World Humanitarian Summit, the Compact for Young People in Humanitarian Action is a collective commitment of over 50 humanitarian actors to ensure that the priorities of young people are addressed, and that they are informed, consulted, and meaningfully engaged throughout all stages of humanitarian action. The ‘Inter-agency Guidelines for Working with and for Young People in Humanitarian Settings’ was developed to address the gap in humanitarian tools that tend to overlook young people, a specific but broad demographic with interlinked needs across multiple sectors.
