“Two types of commitments were gathered before, during and after the Summit. The first type is expressions of alignment to 32 core commitments, developed for each of the seven Highlevel Leaders’ Roundtables of the Summit and in support of the 24 strategic, operational and policy shifts called for in the Agenda for Humanity.

Stakeholders were also invited to make additional individual or joint commitments to support implementation of one or more of the core commitments, or more broadly to advance the Agenda for Humanity.”
