In recent years, non-governmental organizations committed to social and environmental change have invested heavily in improving their professional competence in different sectors. To this effect one innovation has been the use of strategic planning. Therefore, today and especially tomorrow, to be effective an NGO's strategic planning must be accompanied by on-going strategic thinking, at all organizational levels. An NGO must constantly generate new strategies to achieve results in line with its fundamental purpose. Success will depend on strategic management: continuously integrating strategic thinking and planning. Strategic risk management and risk reduction are new approaches of special value to NGOs whose mission is social and environmental change.
The first-ever World Humanitarian Summit is a call to action by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to reduce human loss and suffering from crises. The Summit will take place in Istanbul on 26-27 May 2016.
The challenges and demands of the 21st century are global issues that require global solutions. The World Humanitarian Summit will set an agenda for change to make humanitarian action fit for the great challenges we face now and in the future.
