It has experienced serious shortages of food and energy, a reduction in economic growth rates, as well as recurring climate-related challenges resulting in a severe, chronic and underfunded humanitarian emergency. Despite the exemption granted to humanitarian assistance, the imposition of sanctions, coupled with donor fatigue, has reduced the availability of resources to address even the most pressing of life-threatening situations.
