Of the more than 800 million hungry (i.e. chronically food insecure) people in the world, about 490 million live in countries affected by conflict. That’s 60 percent of the world’s hungry people.

Overview

The Early Warning Early Action initiative has been developed with the understanding that disaster losses and emergency response costs can be drastically reduced by using early warning analysis to act before a crisis escalates into an emergency.

(New York, 1 October 2018): The Emergency Relief Coordinator (ERC) has finalised allocations totalling $80 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) for humanitarian response to some of the UN's least well-funded 2018 response plans across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

The funds will sustain and scale up aid operations across 9 countries, providing support to approximately 2.8 million people displaced by internal or international conflict or suffering from food security or health crises.

As delivered

Madam Chair,

Distinguished Delegates,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am at the midpoint of my mandate.

I look back, and the state of the world does not look good.

In the last two and a half years, the principles and values of international cooperation have come under immense pressure.

Internal conflicts have escalated, fuelled by regional and global rivalries.

Crises have intensified, driven by poverty, exclusion and the growing impact of climate change.
