A changing world
With the 2021 launch of the Climate and Environment Charter, our sector is embracing a more climate-oriented mentality. There are already more than 230 signatories, including Medair, who have committed to being good stewards with the environment and helping communities adapt.
Food and water scarcity
This is reaching alarming levels in many contexts around the world. Droughts, fuel and food price hikes, and scarcity caused by the conflict in Ukraine are threatening millions of lives, particularly in the Horn of Africa region.
Localisation and community
There is a growing focus on giving power, voice, and funding to local organisations and engaging more with communities in the way assistance
An increased number of major conflicts and regime changes has created additional complexity in gaining access to people in need. The humanitarian principle of neutrality is under increased pressure and a conflict-sensitive approach to programming is more important than ever.
Digitalisation of aid
New tools are transforming the ways that aid is delivered, and humanitarians are driving these changes forward. We are tackling the challenge of digitalising aid in remote communities where electricity and elecommunications aren’t always available.
