ReliefWeb Highlights 2016


In its 20th year ReliefWeb notched up a record six million users, a rise of 4.5% from 2015. Most of these came from Africa, which saw a 17.5% jump from the previous year, confirming the continent as the top user base among the humanitarian community. The increase was particularly significant in South Sudan (+30%), Uganda (+18%), and Somalia (+17%).

The jobs and trainings sections enjoyed a sustained increase in content throughout the year: the 32,499 jobs (+9.3%) and 4,651 training opportunities (+23%) published are a clear testament that our humanitarian partners seek out ReliefWeb as the ‘one-stop-shop’ for a range of services relating to their needs.
