Humanitarian assistance in 2013

In 2013, overall needs and requirements increased, putting even more strain on responders. Notwithstanding current crises, 2013 was a record year on many fronts: requirements ($12.84 billion), overall contributions ($22.2 billion), people targeted (73 million) and security incidents (251). In trying to meet these needs, the international community also worked to strengthen its capacity: compared with 2012, 4,000 more jobs were advertised and approximately 80 more organizations participated in inter-agency appeals.
