Ongoing humanitarian crises
Sida has a record humanitarian budget of over SEK 4 billion in 2018. At the beginning of the year, more than 2.1 billion are distributed to 15 major humanitarian crises, and 228 million to 15 minor crises. Just over SEK 1.3 billion remains in a reserve fund for rapidly emerging or worsened crises later this year.
Never before have so many people been in need of humanitarian assistance. The number has increased dramatically from 53 million people in 2010 to close to 129 million in 2018. Humanitarian needs are on the increase primarily due to wars and protracted and complex armed conflicts.
Below we list the crises and disasters in the world that receive humanitarian aid channelled through Sida. You will find a link to an article on the work of Sida in each country, as well as pdf files with humanitarian crisis analysis. The list is not complete and the information from some countries will soon be updated.
Sida's humanitarian crises analyses are carried out every year before the allocation of the humanitarian aid is decided. The crises analyses describe the current state of the crisis, assess the humanitarian needs, and identify the priorities of Sida and its cooperation partners in the region.
