What is the Inclusion Charter?

Five steps to impartial humanitarian response for the most vulnerable

To deliver impartial and accountable humanitarian assistance that responds to vulnerability in all its forms, and reaches the most marginalised people (including children, youth, older people, people with disabilities, ethnic groups and others marginalised due to their social status), an inclusive approach to the design, implementation, monitoring and funding of humanitarian assistance is required.

The Secretary General’s Agenda for Humanity recognises that “Honouring our commitment to leave no one behind requires reaching everyone in situations of conflict, disasters, vulnerability and risk” and places an emphasis on “reach[ing] the furthest behind first”.

To achieve this aim, steps must be taken by all those involved in response – including National Governments, NGOs and civil society, UN agencies and Red Cross/Red Crescent Societies – to address the neglect faced by the most marginalised and those at the greatest risk of being left behind.

The Inclusion Charter consists of five steps that can be taken by humanitarian actors to ensure that assistance reaches those most in need, and supports them to move out of crises and on to a path toward the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
