Ongoing humanitarian crises

Updated: 25 July 2017

Never before have so many people been in need of humanitarian assistance. Humanitarian need continues to increase – primarily due to protracted armed conflicts, but also due to natural disasters. 65 million people, half of which are children, are displaced from their homes. By 2017 Sida has identified 16 major humanitarian crises where over 128 million people are in the need of humanitarian assistance. Over 1.8 million SEK will be allocated to these crises during 2017. 


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.
