Global alliance for urban crises
As a result of the World Humanitarian Summit, UN Habitat convened the Global Alliance for Urban Crises, a multi-stakeholder initiative made up of a broad membership that includes actors not traditionally considered humanitarian responders. The Alliance is the vehicle through which the Urban Recommendations recommendations will be put into action. It is guided by a series of principles as laid out in the Urban Crises Charter.
