The changing nature of humanitarian emergencies

Humanitarian crises are lasting longer and demanding ever more resources. According to UN statistics, countries with consecutive humanitarian appeals make up 9% of the world’s population and the number of people in need of emergency aid will exceed 200 million by 2022. A myriad of factors underpin these projections, including antibiotic resistance, extreme weather fluctuations and the increasingly urban frontlines of displacement crises.
