European Humanitarian Forum 2024



We are pleased to announce that the third edition of the European Humanitarian Forum will take place from Monday 18 to Tuesday 19 March 2024. The event will be held in Flagey, in Brussels, and will be livestreamed on this website.

The Forum, co-organised by the European Commission (DG ECHO) and Belgium in the framework of its Presidency of the Council of the EU, takes place in the context of sharply increasing global humanitarian needs, at a time of shrinking humanitarian space, increasingly complex and protracted conflicts, the politicisation of aid, and increasing vulnerabilities due to climate change.

Global humanitarian needs have reached unprecedented levels. In 2024 nearly 300 million people around the world will need humanitarian assistance and protection, due to conflicts, climate emergencies and other drivers.

Following the success of the first two editions of the European Humanitarian Forum in March 2022 and 2023, the third edition will continue to look at humanitarian aid in a wider, cross-sectoral context. The Forum will explore and address the implications of the current, most pressing humanitarian crises, including relevant interaction of humanitarian aid with other key sectors and policy areas. Additionally, the Forum will bring together local actors, with the objective to jointly propose innovative, more sustainable solutions to contemporary humanitarian challenges.

The onsite registration capacity for the EHF has been reached. The event will be live streamed on this website. If you wish to be notified via email when the streaming is about to start, please click here to register
