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.




In 2012, international organizations targeted 65 million people around the world for humanitarian assistance through inter-agency appeals. The Horn of Africa region faced a particularly severe emergency, with many people still in need following the food security crisis, including famine in Somalia, in 2011.
