El sistema humanitario internacional no será capaz de hacer frente al creciente número de crisis si no se actúa localmente

La agencia internacional Oxfam ha advertido hoy de que la capacidad de respuesta del sistema humanitario internacional no será suficiente para hacer frente al aumento en el número de personas expuestas a futuras crisis si no se destinan más fondos a los países más vulnerables y se invierta más en prevención y reducción de riesgos ante posibles desastres.
