UN proposes record amount for humanitarian aid


According to papers on its website, the UN has suggested allocating the greatest sum ever for humanitarian needs next year.

$51.5 billion, a 25% increase from the start of this year, could be set aside for this purpose, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs paper.

It is made clear that this requirement arises as a result of a rise in the population in need of humanitarian assistance. In 68 nations throughout the world in 2023, that number is projected to increase by 65 million to 339 million people.

According to Martin Griffiths, the UN's emergency relief coordinator, next year's "extreme events" will continue to have an impact and cause a "dramatic" rise in humanitarian needs.
