Background and context
World Humanitarian Data and Trends presents global and country-level data-and-trend analysis about humanitarian crises and assistance. Its purpose is to consolidate this information and present it in an accessible way, providing policymakers, researchers and humanitarian practitioners with an evidence base to support humanitarian policy decisions and provide context for operational decisions. The information presented covers two main areas: humanitarian needs and assistance in 2015, and humanitarian trends, challenges and opportunities.

Through the first six months of 2016 humanitarian response efforts have been dominated by emergency relief to people affected by conflict. The conflict intensified between January and June, with notable increases in civilian casualties (4%), displacements (17%) and security related incidents (8%) as compared to the same period last year.
ISAF/NATO Firing Ranges: In addition to the above, survey and clearance are still required on 60 firing ranges belonging to the ISAF/NATO troop contributing nations with an area of 166 sq km. From December 2012 to the end of June 2016, 43 such hazards and a total area of 1,105 sq km were successfully released.
So far this year more than 231,000 people crossed the Mediterranean. While the trend of decreased arrivals through the Eastern Mediterranean continued during the month of June, with only 1,500 new arrivals in Greece, some 22,250 people were rescued in Italian waters during the same period of time.
• Since January 2015, more than 1,200,000 people crossed the Mediterranean. From late 2015 and onwards there has been a steady increase in the proportion of children among refugees and migrants not only on the Eastern Mediterranean, but also on the more dangerous and perilous Central Mediterranean migration route. Currently this proportion stands at 35 per cent of all arrivals in 2016. In addition, it is estimated that almost 500 children lost their lives in the Eastern and Central Mediterranean since the beginning of 2016.
Since the beginning of 2016, almost 184,500 people have crossed the Mediterranean to seek safety and protection in Europe. Of them, 154,914 arrived on Greek shores. Since last March, there has been a significant reduction in the flow of refugee and migrant populations from northern Greece due to the enforcement of more rigid border controls along with adoption of the EU-Turkey agreement.

In 2016 over 125 million people living in crisis-affected countries are in need of humanitarian assistance. The humanitarian community is committed to providing aid to over 87 million of those in need. The risks to health posed by humanitarian emergencies are at an all-time high. Developments such as climate change, urbanization, population growth and worsening civil conflict are increasing the frequency and severity of many types of emergencies. Attacks on health workers and health facilities are also on the rise.
Scope of the Remaining Problem: Due to the fact that only 34.5 percent of the communities have been surveyed, the exact scope of the contamination remains unclear.
Casualties: 286 incidents containing 469 causalities have been reported under the ACAP III project. 313 Immediate Assistant Packages (IAP) were distributed to 342 eligible household in Hirat, Badghis, Ghor and Farah provinces.
Since the beginning of 2016, almost 153,200 people have crossed the Mediterranean to seek safety and protection in Europe. Of them, 143,205 arrived through the Eastern Mediterranean, on Greek shores.
In February 2016, women and children made up 63 per cent of refugees and migrants crossing from Greece into the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, children were 41 per cent.
More than one million people arrived in Europe by sea in 2015. Since the beginning of 2016, almost 82,640 new arrivals were registered, 76,607 of them on Greek shores.
Women and children are now 59 per cent of refugees and migrants crossing from Greece into the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and children make up 37 per cent.
