While there is room for disagreement about migration policy, the humanitarian imperative means that we must never needlessly sacrifice the survival and dignity of any vulnerable people, including migrants.
The year 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Global Shelter Cluster, the inter-agency coordination mechanism for shelter response. During these ten years, coordination has improved in consistency, shelter responses have grown in scale, and there are more people with experience in shelter programming, but people continue to lose their dwellings and be displaced due to conflict and natural disasters. Global humanitarian shelter needs continue to greatly exceed the capacity and resources to respond.

The eradication of wildpolio virus remains one of the most pressing health challenges in Africa.
The continent witnessed the majority of global polio cases in 2013, and is home to one of the three last countries in the world where polio is still endemic, Nigeria. Polio is highly contagious and one of the most difficult diseases to eradicate. About 90 per cent of all children in any given community must receive multiple immunizations to wipe out the virus. No other global health effort in history has posed such a logistical challenge.

Investing in National Societies’ volunteers and partnerships: the road to strengthening community resilience in East Africa Imagine that the communities in which we work are on a road, and that groups within a community can agree on desirable development destinations.
Today, it is well accepted that our own actions – as individuals, communities and nations – make all the difference between a natural event and a natural disaster. We may not be able to stop the earth from shaking, or storms from striking, but our choices can determine the extent of death and damage they cause.
