This publication presents global and country-level data and trend analysis relevant to humanitarian assistance. Its purpose is to bring this information together in one place and present it in an accessible way. It is intended to establish a common baseline of humanitarian data that allow for comparisons across time. This data can be used to help support humanitarian policy decisions and provide country-level context that can support operational decision-making.



Humanitarian needs in 2012

In 2012, international organizations targeted 65 million people around the world for humanitarian assistance through inter-agency appeals. The appeals process brings aid organizations together to plan and deliver aid to people affected by disasters, conflict and other crises. The process does not target all people in humanitarian need. In 2012, 144 million people were displaced by conflict or affected by a disaster. Many receive help from their communities and government, or their needs go unrecognized and unaddressed. There is no comprehensive, global picture of humanitarian needs.
