               Shared Responsibility

     Report of the Secretary-General for the

            World Humanitarian Summit

A/70/709, 2 February 2016
UN General Assembly, 70th Session, Item 73 (a)

     Humanitarian Summit provides a first test of the international communi-

     conflicts and violence forced approximately 42,500 people to flee
     their homes and seek safety either internally or across borders. As a
     result, the number of internally displaced persons, refugees and asylum
