Global Humanitarian Assistance Report 2022

This report published by Development Initiatives provides an annual assessment of the global humanitarian financing landscape. The 2022 edition outlines the significant challenges currently facing the humanitarian system, documenting the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, climate change, and global conflict – and the resulting increase in humanitarian need worldwide. The report provides an overview of humanitarian financing and details how funding has flatlined while demand for humanitarian assistance remains historically high. In 2021, an estimated 306 million people needed humanitarian assistance, and the number of countries experiencing long-term, protracted crises increased. The report highlights sources of humanitarian assistance and urges change to the structure and methods of humanitarian funding for countries most vulnerable to crisis, presenting findings on gender-related funding and the role of private donors in financing humanitarian assistance.
