Key takeaways

Positive: Strong results in terms of commitments to action given that only first iteration and relatively short notice

Negative: Minimal results in terms of commitments to funding. Key funders are still sitting on the fence. Excuses: Covid, Afghanistan, Ukraine

An urgent need for leadership: To catalyse funding for MHH, we now need those actors who have expressed their support for the issue to walk the talk and lead by example by making significant financial commitments to MHH.
