CERF High-Level Conference 2013

CERF’s 2013 High-Level Conference (HLC) was held on 13 December in New York.

Every year, the HLC brings together senior representatives from Governments, UN agencies, non-governmental organizations, foundations and the private sector to pledge their commitments to the Fund. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Under-Secretary-General and Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos also attended.

This year the conference highlighted the impact of CERF-funded projects on people affected by crisis. For a preview, have a look at the photo essays on the right.
