report Save the Children

A record-breaking 68.5 million individuals worldwide have been displaced from their homes as a result of persecution, conflict, or violence. Over 50% are children. When a displacement crisis occurs, aid agencies are equipped to mobilise massive resources in a very short period of time, but the response is often reactive. With the rise in predictive analytics, a new paradigm in humanitarian and development planning becomes possible. Predictive analytics allows agencies to anticipate the onset of a crisis and understand how that crisis will unfold over time.

Save the Children is warning of potential large-scale damage and loss of life among Rohingya refugees this cyclone season as they continue to languish in makeshift camps in southern Bangladesh.

The warning comes as the world marks 48 years since the deadliest cyclone on record ripped through the Bay of Bengal, killing more than 500,000 people with winds of up to 240 km/h. Currently, only five percent of Rohingya shelters can resist winds up to 80km/h, with the remaining 95 percent only able to withstand lower wind speeds.

Pneumonia is on course to kill nearly 11 million children by 2030, new analysis conducted by Johns Hopkins University and Save the Children reveals.

The in-depth modelling, released on World Pneumonia Day, also shows that more than four million of these deaths – more than a third – could be easily averted with concerted action to improve rates of vaccination, treatment and nutrition.

Without action, the aid organisation’s forecasts show Nigeria, India, Pakistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are likely to bear the highest burden of deaths.
