Plenary session
Responding to crises: lessons learned and future challenges

Many issues have been discussed over the two days of the conference. What lessons can we take away from the meeting? What remains uncertain and unresolved?

As the UN General Assembly meets in New York, what can we learn from the conference for ongoing crises such as poverty and hunger, new crises such as the one of humanitarian refugees, and future crises and responses?
