Global Humanitarian Assistance Report to be released next week

The latest Global Humanitarian Assistance Report, GHA Report 2011, to be released July 20.

The international humanitarian financing community has had a challenging 12 months, faced as it has been with a range of significant demands. Natural disasters, political turmoil, conflict, climate change and the hazards of the global economy have all contributed to the mix, with the latter having led to the contracting of many aid budgets across the globe, thus stretching the global capacity to meet humanitarian needs.

The Global Humanitarian Assistance (GHA) Programme in the UK will be launching the latest of its annual Global Humanitarian Assistance reports, GHA Report 2011, on Wednesday 20th July. The report provides the latest and most comprehensive picture of global humanitarian financing, breaking it down to provide information on where the money comes from, where it goes, and how it gets there, presenting data and analysis on the top donors and top recipients, delivery agencies and financing mechanisms, and extending to contributions by the military, domestic response and more. The variety of forces which shape humanitarian assistance, as well as the view beyond it, are also explored. Key messages emerge from the analysis, emphasising the enduring need for transparency and effective coordination of resources.

GHA will be launching the report at a side event of the humanitarian segment of this  year’s ECOSOC substantive session in Geneva, on 20th July. A presentation will be given by Jan Kellett, GHA Programme Leader, on the key facts, figures and trends followed by panel discussion.

The report will be available to download from the GHA website July 20 th. or in hard copy by request.
