Welcome to the Global Humanitarian Assistance Report 2018.
An estimated 201 million people in 134 countries needed international humanitarian assistance in 2017, a fifth of whom were in just three countries – Syria, Yemen and Turkey. A small number of complex crises continue to absorb the majority of humanitarian assistance – 60% of all assistance was channelled to 10 countries only, with 14% going to Syria, the largest recipient, and 8% to Yemen, the second-largest. Conflict continues to feature as a main contributor to humanitarian need. Syria was the single largest recipient of humanitarian assistance for the fifth consecutive year, while Greece and Turkey featured among the 10 largest recipients of international humanitarian assistance for the first time.
