J. J. MESSNER
Your Excellency Vice President Schultz,
Distinguished delegates, ladies and gentlemen,
Mr. Vice President, thank you very much for your opening remarks and for your leadership in overseeing the Humanitarian Affairs Segment of ECOSOC. I also thank the President of ECOSOC and its Bureau members for their support. And I take the opportunity to acknowledge the co-facilitators of this year’s ECOSOC humanitarian resolution - the Philippines and Switzerland - for their stewardship.
Ambassador Leendertse, Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen.
It is a real pleasure to be here today. I would like to thank Germany for co-hosting this important event on a topic that has been front and centre on our agenda over the past few months. We have a diverse panel from the humanitarian and development communities, each of them representing organizations that are deeply involved in the ongoing response and averting famine.
Already unprecedented food assistance needs grow further; risk of Famine persist
(Geneva, 21 June 2017): A record 141 million people across 37 countries in the world need humanitarian assistance today while UN-coordinated response plans, aiming to help over 101 million of the most vulnerable, are only one-quarter funded.
Stephen O’Brien, Secrétaire général des Nations Unies aux affaires humanitaires et Coordonnateur des secours d’urgence

Over 20 million people in north-east Nigeria, South Sudan, Yemen and Somalia are already at or over the tipping point of famine. Thanks to the generosity of its donors, CERF has released $117.5 million for early action and life-saving operations in Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen. In north-east Nigeria, an allocation of $22 million is reaching an estimated 2.9 million people affected by Boko Haram related violence and food insecurity. In Somalia, CERF has allocated $33 million to help vulnerable people in severe drought areas in Puntland, Somaliland and South Central.
The Logistics Cluster enables global, regional and local actors to meet humanitarian needs.
Before crises, we work with the stakeholders in high-risk countries and regions to strengthen local capacities.
In crises, where local capacities have been exceeded, we provide leadership, coordination, and information, and facilitate access to operational services.
Globally, the Logistics Cluster is a community of partners actively working to overcome logistics constraints, and to develop and share best practices and solutions.
