The Humanitarian Action Report is the annual appeal from UNICEF on behalf of children and women affected by emergency situations throughout the world. This report offers a general overview of financing needs, information about emergency situations in different regions and countries and provides human interest stories. It highlights the invaluable work of partner agencies in resolving the needs of children in an increasingly complex humanitarian environment.
This year’s report shows that the world is witness to crises worsened by tendencies that are bigger than any one agency’s capacity can face; it also emphasises situations that require exceptional support to save lives and protect children from mistreatment.
