UNHCR in 2017 – by the numbers
As of September 2017, UNHCR’s budget is at an historic high of $7.763 billion, which is currently 46% funded
This growth is concurrent with the unabated levels of global displacement, with 67.7 million people of concern to UNHCR worldwide.
The funding gap is widening, now standing at 54%. Based on indications received from donors and analysis of funding trends, UNHCR estimates the gap may reduce to 47% by year’s end.

Guerra y hambre
Las guerras disparan hambre.
Por primera vez en 20 años el hambre vuelve a aumentar. Detrás de esta ruptura en la tendencia positiva está la mano del hombre. Concretamente la mano que dispara armas y hambre en más de 40 países. Seis de cada 10 personas con hambre en el mundo viven en zonas de conflicto. Y la amplia mayoría de niños y niñas desnutridos (122 de 155 millones) lo están por la guerra.
