الأمم المتحدة تطلب مساعدات قياسية بقيمة 41 مليار دولار

By Jordi Bou

December 2, 2021 - تحتاج الأمم المتحدة إلى 41 مليار دولار لتمويل المساعدات الإنسانية لـ 183 مليون شخص في 63 دولة في ظل دخول الوباء عامه الثالث وتزايد عدد النزاعات وآثار تغير المناخ.

The UN humanitarian agency OCHA appealed for $41bn, up from the $35bn requested for 2021 and double the amount sought four years ago.

In its Global Humanitarian Overview report, OCHA said 274 million people worldwide will need some form of emergency assistance next year, up 17 percent from the figure for 2021, which was a record high.

It said one in 29 people will need help in 2022, marking a 250 percent increase since 2015 when one in 95 needed assistance.

Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Ethiopia and Sudan are the five major crises requiring the most funding, topped by $4.5 billion sought for Taliban-ruled Afghanistan.
