The Humanitarian Charter was drafted by a group of professionals from different humanitarian agencies, brought together by the commitment to make humanitarian aid accountable to affected populations.

The Charter contains a series of rights and obligations aimed at ensuring the welfare of crisis-affected populations. The Charter also captures a consensus among different humanitarian actors as to the shared principles which should guide the response to disaster or conflict.
