International Humanitarian City
International Humanitarian City (IHC) a place that is a catalyst for changing the world and the way we think about it. The first humanitarian hub of its kind, IHC enables humanitarian organisations through its global reach, infrastructure and custom designed services to facilitate aid and development efforts across the globe. IHC is a global humanitarian and aid hub, which aims to facilitate aid and development efforts by providing local and international humanitarian actors with facilities and services specifically designed to meet their needs.
An independent free zone authority created by the Government of Dubai1 , IHC consolidates Dubai as an essential link in the humanitarian value chain. Leveraging the proven Dubai free zone model, IHC addresses the specific needs of the humanitarian aid and development community, while grouping them in a secure environment that fosters partnerships, social responsibility and global change.
At the same time, IHC offers commercial companies the opportunity to operate from a highly strategic location in a free zone environment that is adapted to their particular industry, while benefiting from attractive incentives and an array of value-added services.
IHC believes that humanitarian operations will benefit from the integration of commercial suppliers of goods and services. By co-locating, nonprofit and commercial entities will be encouraged to share best practices to increase their operational efficiencies and improve institutional learning.
IHC is a non-religious, non-political and nonprofit organisation.
Acting both as an operational platform and a physical and virtual meeting place, IHC provides nonprofit organisations, companies, donors, volunteers, governments and those striving to save lives with a common ground for collaboration.
