MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
As wars dragged on in many parts of the world, huge numbers of people struggled to meet even their most basic needs in 2017. In the absence of political solutions, these people seem destined to endure even more violence in the coming year. If humanitarian organizations cannot rise to the challenge and provide greater relief and protection, even more people could suffer.

Despite the United Nations repeated calls on parties to conflict and Member States to protect civilians, and to stop direct and indiscriminate attacks on civilians and their vital infrastructure, many warring parties continue to flagrantly violate international humanitarian law with impunity.
