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.
Launch of the Global Humanitarian Overview 2019 and the World Humanitarian Data and Trends 2018
The number of people facing severe hunger in the world continues to rise, reaching 124 million people across 51 countries. Conflict and extreme climate events remain the main drivers behind severe food crises. Often occurring simultaneously, all dimensions of food security – food availability, access and utilization – are further undermined.
Crises affect more people, for longer, and conflict remains the main driver of humanitarian and protection needs. The Global Humanitarian Overview presents detailed, prioritized and costed plans for how the United Nations and partner organizations will respond worldwide
(Geneva, 4 December 2018) – The world is witnessing extremely high levels of humanitarian need driven primarily by armed conflicts that generate enormous suffering and displacement for years on end.
Les crises affectent un plus grand nombre de personnes, durent plus longtemps et les conflits demeurent la cause principale des besoins humanitaires et de protection. L’Aperçu de la situation humanitaire mondiale présente des plans détaillés, priorisés, et chiffrés sur la manière dont les Nations Unies et ses organisations partenaires répondront à ces besoins à travers le monde
Global trends and challenges
More than 1 per cent of people across the planet right now are caught up in major humanitarian crises. The international humanitarian system is more effective than ever at meeting their needs – but global trends including poverty, population growth and climate change are leaving more people than ever vulnerable to the devastating impacts of conflicts and disasters.
The Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO) for 2019 will be launched in Geneva on 4 December. It is the most comprehensive, authoritative and evidence-based assessment of priority global humanitarian needs and how to respond to them.
Why does the GHO matter?
The latest edition of Crisis Group's monthly conflict tracker highlights dangers of escalating conflict in Sri Lanka and Yemen. CrisisWatch also notes improved situations in China/Japan and Nagorno-Karabakh (Azerbaijan).
