Description

In 2021, 1 in 33 people worldwide will need humanitarian assistance. This is a significant increase from 1 in 45 last year, which was already the highest figure in decades. Worse still, amid ongoing violent conflict, rising hunger and the effects of climate change and the pandemic, the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance keeps growing.

In this webinar, Dr. Peter MAURER, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), discusses what it takes to meet humanitarian needs in complex and protracted crises.
