This results in overcrowded ‘hotspots’ and poor conditions.

The situation increases tension and protection risks, including sexual and genderbased violence. Vulnerable asylum-seekers and children are particularly at risk.

While the majority of these are conflict emergencies, the frequency of natural disasters is also on the rise – with Cyclone Winston hitting Fiji in February 2016 and Hurricane Matthew striking Haiti last October. The need to strengthen preparedness and resilience is becoming more and more critical.
