Conclusions and recommendations

The number of people facing humanitarian crises is rising, and the international humanitarian system cannot keep up. Climate change, food-price volatility and other emerging threats have increased the risk and complexity of crises, making them bigger, longer and more difficult to deal with. Chronic, recurring crises have eroded people’s ability to cope, rendering them increasingly vulnerable to future calamities. Humanitarian organizations are being asked to do more, and at greater cost, than ever before. Development programming is often not targeted at the people most at risk of humanitarian crises, or sufficiently flexible to respond to changing risks and potential crises.
