In this challenge paper the members of the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Council propose a new vulnerability and protection business model for humanitarian assistance. This new model has six requirements: a comprehensive risk framework; a reworked balance of spending between response, prevention and recovery; a big investment in national and local capacity; fuller engagement of the private sector; linking of the humanitarian to broader social and economic development issues; and regional and international readiness to address cross-border humanitarian issues.
