Trends and analysis

During the preparation of inter-agency appeals, humanitarian organizations identify a target number of people to receive aid. The process is complicated and not always consistent between countries, although it is improving. This figure shows trends in the numbers of people in need, based on recent appeals. It shows that the crises that affect most people in a single year usually also last several years. It is in such protracted crises that the majority of needs exist. The crisis in Afghanistan has affected most people over the last 4 years.
