La ONU busca asistencia récord de $41.000 millones

By Jordi Bou

December 2, 2021 - Naciones Unidas necesita $41.000 millones para financiar asistencia humanitaria para 183 millones de personas en 63 países, cuando la pandemia inicia su tercer año y aumentan los estragos causados por los conflictos y el cambio climático.

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.
