Crises in the Middle East (Syria and Iraq), disasters caused by natural hazards in Asia, and Ebola in West Africa have recently dominated the international headlines. This paper looks at the numbers behind what has happened with often less reported humanitarian needs and funding in East and Central Africa.
This paper is a supplement to the Global Humanitarian Assistance (GHA) Report 2015 and was produced as background for a presentation at the Humanitarian Partnership Conference in Nairobi on 15–17 September 2015. It draws on the key questions in the GHA report, providing key facts and figures with a focus on East and Central Africa to inform discussions at the Conference and in other forums.
