A World At Risk: Humanitarian Response At A Crossroads
A dramatic increase in protracted conflict and displacement combined with an ever-increasing number of natural disasters has resulted in widespread human suffering, loss of dignity, dashed hopes and death.
The structure and resources devoted to response efforts under current world conditions are simply inadequate for the task.
Eight of the leading U.S. humanitarian relief and advocacy organizations came together to review current international relief efforts and propose a set of recommendations designed to better meet the needs of the people affected by the growing number of crises. The organizations are CARE, International Rescue Committee, Mercy Corps, Oxfam America, Save the Children U.S., U.S. Fund for UNICEF, the U.S. Institute of Peace and World Food Program USA.
