Gulf Cooperation Council Aid

Over the past four decades, the six member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have been the source of large amounts of overseas development assistance, humanitarian aid, and other forms of support for developing and crisis afflicted countries, both through state led channels and through the work of private organizations and individual donors. With their own experiences of rapid development over the past several decades and lengthy experience of working in underdeveloped and fragile contexts. The GCC states have considerable store of institutional knowledge with respect to development.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has reached out to the world in providing humanitarian assistance. The Kingdom’s global assistance amounted to billions of dollars which represents 5.8% of the total amount of humanitarian aid provided worldwide.

Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been able to provide such extensive humanitarian support to those in need thanks to the ongoing commitment by the Kingdom’s leadership to alleviating suffering around the world by reflecting these values in committing to supporting people in need worldwide.

Royal Group Charity congratulates the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on this remarkable achievement.

The United Arab Emirates has been another major humanitarian donor after it offered billion of dollars in foreign aid to reach the most vulnerable communities and the least developed societies in more than 140 countries around the world by promoting policies which improve the economic and social well being of people around the world.

The United Arab Emirates targeted different sectors such as tourism, health, transport, education, social services, infrastructure development water and sanitation, environment and climate change, agriculture with the remaining amount of the UAE’s foreign disbursement dedicated to charity and humanitarian aid which were translated in supporting the sectors of health and education, in strengthening coordination and support services, and in the provision of food, shelter and non food items to vulnerable communities.

This achievement of the UAE was made possible, thanks to several governmental and non governmental bodies who are thoughtfully dedicated to alleviating suffering and promoting development around the world.

Money was spent on developmental, humanitarian and charitable projects in 71 countries and on one global project.

Dress One Million Needy Children project was of a global character and it aimed at providing support to more than two million children in 44 countries around the world.

Royal Group Charity congratulates Emir Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum for their continuous efforts and great achievements in humanitarian objective purposes around the world.

The state of Kuwait is an inveterate donor in the world and the largest provider of development co-operation in the Gulf region, providing its assistance under the broad framework of its commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Kuwait’s official development assistance has been increasing consistently over the past decade. Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development provides concessional loans for development projects that are high priority to recipient countries, following a demand-driven approach.

Kuwait uses it’s fund assets for development and humanitarian on a national and international level.

The Kuwait Fund allocates more than a quarter of its annual income to the Public Authority for Housing Assistance to help Kuwaiti citizens with their housing needs.

The Fund also originates loans to assist countries worldwide in developing infrastructure, health services, education, energy and agricultural needs.

In addition to the Fund, Kuwait also extends substantial humanitarian aid during natural disasters.

The other source that Kuwait uses to achieve and execute some of its initiatives is the Kuwait Investment Authority, which was established in 1953 to diversify revenues away from oil and to secure the welfare of future generations. Being one of the largest Sovereign Wealth Fund in the world.

Royal Group Charity congratulates Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and Crown Prince Nawaf Al-Sabah for their continuous and generous contributions around the world.

Qatar’s international relations and foreign policy are also a sign of generosity from the state. Qatar has emerged as a trusted third-party mediator successfully cultivating sophisticated engagements in peace and conflict issues and solidifying its reputation as a key global player in conflict-affected contexts.

Qatar has established a unique position for itself by maintaining, over many years, a campaign for human rights and freedom of expression and by championing a number of humanitarian crises in the region and beyond.

Qatar’s role as a humanitarian donor is not under threat and it may even emerge from the crisis with a more sustainable and resilient humanitarian sector.

As a result of the crisis, Qatar’s humanitarian sector has been minimized with only Qatar Charity and the Qatar Red Crescent Society as major operational humanitarian actors and Qatar Foundation as a donor for education support. Qatar now more closely resembles other Gulf states in the reduced diversity and size of its humanitarian sector.

The volume of Qatari humanitarian aid has not declined. Rather, while Qatari humanitarian aid levels dropped in 2016, they returned to pre-blockade numbers in 2017, signaling that Qatar intends to uphold its international commitments and maintain its international and regional role through the blockade. What has been observed, however, is a shift in resource allocation with a greater proportion of Qatar’s humanitarian financing channeled through multi-lateral organizations.

learning from previous failures and triumphs, Qatar’s active role in gaining international recognition as a regional power has evolved from employing reactive, short term strategy to a more sophisticated approach of sustainable long term programming backed by larger financial allocations. 

Royal Group Charity congratulates Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani for his effective contribution to realizing the international partnership for development and enhancement of the international developmental aid in relation with assisting the developing countries to achieve the millennium developmental goals.

The Kingdom of Bahrain is one of the Gulf leader and occupying a high position on the World Giving Index. This position is the fruit of the charitable organizations and Bahrain community remarkable efforts and close cooperation with various humanitarian organizations around the world. Under the patronage of His Majesty the King of the Kingdom of Bahrain, Honorary President of the Royal Humanitarian Foundation, the support of the good government and the illuminated leadership of His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Chairman of RHF’s Board of Trustees, RHF is leading the Bahraini charity and humanitarian work to set the name of Bahrain among the most initiating and giving world nations.

Bahrain always tries to be present in most areas that undergo conflict and wars and natural disasters in order to provide humanitarian aid and relief,

The Royal Humanitarian Foundation launched Your Food at Your Home initiative to distribute meals to the needy. 

Royal Group Charity would like to congratulate His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Deputy King and Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa for the continuous efforts in meeting the international standards for  meeting all humanitarian needs.

The sultans of Oman’s main concentration has always been focussed on humanitarian.

The Oman Humanitarian Desalination Challenge is a joint initiative led by MEDRC Water Research and The Research Council Oman with funding provided by The Sultan Qaboos Higher Center for Culture and Science.

Access to clean fresh drinking water following a disaster is critical to health and survival. Current relief response measures often rely on transporting massive quantities of bottled water into the affected population or distributing water purification devices or tablets that don’t have the ability to rid water of salt. There is an urgent need for a desalination device that can be deployed quickly and affordably to people in need of drinking water in times of crises. Such a device would revolutionize humanitarian emergency response efforts in the aftermath of natural disasters.

Oman Charitable Organization is a state funded charitable organization engaged in supporting and financing the social care programs intended for the general welfare of the people, children, orphans, elderly people, and the disabled. Oman provides emergency relief in case of disasters or natural calamities.

Royal Group Charity would like to congratulate His Majesty Haitham bin Tariq Al Said for continuous care around the world for children, youth, family welfare, community development, disasters and humanitarian.

Royal Group Charity welcomes the ongoing cooperation between the  Gulf Cooperation Council, and the shared commitment to safeguarding the well being of families and citizens, which serves to underline the world’s united stand against COVID-19.

Royal Group Charity pledges $33 million for Coronavirus Deadly Outbreak ( COVID-19 )

Royal Group Charity Foundation responding to coronavirus

Royal Group Charity Foundation, Founder and Trustee His Highness Prince Khalid Al-Sabah announced yesterday that Royal Group Charity is following the updates on the new coronavirus epidemic which has resulted in daily deaths all over the world.

From Asia, Europe, the Middle East, the Americas and Africa, a steady stream of new cases fueled fears that the new coronavirus epidemic may be turning into a global pandemic, with some health officials saying it may be inevitable.

As the coronavirus continues to multiply and spread around the world, Royal Group Charity Foundation pledged to spend $33 million to boost efforts to address the outbreak.

The funds will help strengthen safe shelter, hygiene food safety, and family assistance.
The funds will support the development of prevention systems in Africa Middle East and Asia.

The funds will be distributed to local partners that Royal Group Charity Foundation works closely with who follow the safety guidelines of the World Health Organization.

Royal Group Charity Foundation’s main focus has mostly been on fighting poverty. We have always maintained a firm determination  to fight poverty as a determined philanthropist in the world.

The funds will help strengthen prevention measures being implemented in countries with at-risk populations by working with Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Our commitment to Africa is part of an effort to help the less fortunate in the global response to the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Another $5 million has been committed to help secure food and shelter for those without means to survive the epidemic.

Among African Union member states, the efforts should be supported by the African field epidemiology network (AFENET), in collaboration with the Africa centers for disease control and prevention. AFENET is a nonprofit alliance of field epidemiology and laboratory training programs that operates across the African continent.

Multilateral organizations, governments, private sector, and philanthropies must all work together to slow the pace of the outbreak by helping countries protect their most vulnerable citizens, and accelerate the development of the tools to bring this epidemic under control.

According to Royal Group Charity press report release, all private and public hospitals, and health facilities must report any suspected case to the local authorities by following the guidelines of the World Health Organization. Royal Group Charity Foundation has advised people to avoid unnecessary travel to the cities where the new coronavirus has spread and avoid close contact with the persons who show any of the related symptoms.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS-CoV) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.  

According to the World Health Organization  ( WHO ) Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. 

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. 

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

W.H.O. raises its risk assessment to the highest level.

UAE Foreign Aid

Facts

(1) The UAE has donated billions of US Dollars in overseas aid over the last four decades.

(2) The UAE implements fully its official development assistance commitments to least developed countries.

(3) The UAE has donated over $40 billion in humanitarian and relief aid in emergency situations and charity aid to over 175 countries around the world.

Humanitarian aid accounts for a significant part of the UAE’s total foreign aid where the country responds to major crises through its charities and humanitarian agencies called the Abu Dhabi fund for development, Emirates red crescent, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan foundation and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum charity and humanitarian foundation as well as other international organizations.

The UAE foreign aid targets priority areas such as humanitarian assistance, charitable aid, elimination of poverty, support for children, global sectoral programs such as transportation, infrastructure, construction of housing complexes, roads, bridges, power generation, governments support, development projects, and empowerment of women

The UAE’s aid has only humanitarian objectives. It is neither governed by politics nor is not limited by geography, race, color or religion of the beneficiary. This is a practical application of the principle of tolerance in the UAE. This policy was laid down by the founder President of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who stressed that foreign aid and assistance is one of the basic pillars of UAE foreign policy.

When formulating its approach to providing foreign aid, the UAE has adopted the idea of sustainable development and improving the welfare of all mankind.

The main goal of foreign aid offered by the UAE is to reduce poverty and improve quality of life in underprivileged communities, promote relations between the UAE and other states, including the recipient countries and other donor states, and encourage creation of economic relations with developing countries based on mutual interests

The UAE provides foreign aid in response to the directives from His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, extending help to the needy people around the world. This is based on the UAE’s commitment to support the goals of sustainable development that the international community has agreed to achieve in the coming 15 years to eliminate poverty

The International Humanitarian City

Founded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, The International Humanitarian City is the one and only non-profit, independent, humanitarian free-zone Authority hosting a community of members comprised of UN organizations, international non-governmental organizations, intergovernmental organizations, and commercial companies.

The International Humanitarian City is the largest humanitarian hub in the world with the most diverse members. It plays a pivotal role in facilitating first responses to crises at a global level efficiently. Based in Dubai, The International Humanitarian City has a strategic location allowing rapid relief to be within reach in all corners of the world.

The International Humanitarian City enables its members and aid agencies to conduct fundraising activities in the United Arab Emirates with the partnership and support of the City to obtain government approval. it offers an innovative approach to support humanitarian response through its facilities, warehousing and close-knit network of partners in the private sector, local community, and government.

In order to consolidate the impact of the UAE foreign aid, the UAE cabinet has formed the UAE humanitarian committee, which aims to channel and combine the collective expertise of UAE humanitarian responders in order to facilitate, oversee and coordinate the country’s humanitarian aid.

The UAE’s foreign aid was in line with the country’s policy of supporting the UN millennium development goals.

The UAE is currently involved in the efforts to achieve United Nations sustainable development goals.

GCC 2020 Chronic Poverty Vision

Implementation of

GCC 2020 Chronic Poverty Vision

With the believe that eliminating extreme poverty is possible, Royal Group Charity is proud to present the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision to implement our actions on this belief.

Ending extreme poverty is possible and therefore launch a global movement behind this effort.

Each year, the GCC Countries make a life saving difference for millions of men, women, and children around the world to equip and empower the most vulnerable people with tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty.

Extreme poverty and suffering persist in too many parts of the world. More than a billion people struggle to survive each day which is unacceptable to Royal Group Charity Foundation.

With highly skilled and committed professionals who share an exceptional depth of experience will focus on the most vulnerable communities and some of the hardest to reach. GCC 2020 Poverty Vision will be working in over 15 countries across Africa reaching millions of people to help access high quality primary education and supporting children well being which is a worldly recognized solution to the cycle of poverty.

GCC 2020 Poverty Vision is a global community of humanitarians, partners, community members, supporters, donors, and volunteers who share a common vision of a world where no one lives in poverty, oppression or fear. Providing everyone the opportunity to exercise their rights to a brighter future. To have access to the opportunities and choices essential to a healthy and creative life that can be treated with honor and respect.

We are convinced that changes can happen when people are equipped and empowered to improve the lives and futures of their families.

The change becomes stable when we share the vision and help partner organizations and governments reach people on a much larger scale.

We are accurate in going to some of the hardest places and staying until the work is complete to help make sure change is sustainable.

Since 2010, the GCC Countries have been significantly reducing the extreme poverty rate. With this progress maintained, the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision can eliminate at least the most extreme forms of absolute poverty in a much shorter timespan.

Following this road path of the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision, it could take another 40 years or more to lift one billion people out of poverty. Another positive path would be to incorporate the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision with the developing world in seeing one billion people out of extreme poverty by sometime around 2040.

What are the assurances that the second positive path can be followed? Among the list of threats one can identify to attaining that goal, inequality stands out as a major concern. Rising inequality can mean that growth largely by passes poor people. This has been happening in some countries. Experience among developing countries has been varied. Inequality falls about as often as it rises in growing developing countries, although absolute poverty measures tend to fall with growth. High inequality countries have a harder time reducing poverty in that they typically need higher growth rates than low inequality countries to attain the same pace of progress against poverty, and their high inequality often makes that growth even harder to attain.

In thinking about the implications for policy it is important to unpack inequality to identify the specific dimensions most relevant to progress against poverty. Inequalities in access to good quality schooling and health care stand out in many developing countries. In many rural economies, inequalities in access to land also remain an impediment to pro poor growth.

With the required political will, there is much that can be done to improve health and education services in poor places and in making legal systems more inclusive. These are high priorities for antipoverty policy by Improving tax systems in poor countries to expand the revenue for domestic anti poverty policies.

First there will be emergency aid short term assistance to deal with crises. Development assistance should help foster the conditions for sustainable poverty reduction in the longer term, including institutional development and building better public administrations.

It must be acknowledged, however, that the record of development aid has been uneven, and not always well considered in the light of what we have learned about the economics of poverty.

The sustainability of poverty reduction efforts poses a further set of challenges that assure that GCC 2020 Poverty Vision can be anticipated to ensure the sustainability of the reduction in poverty.

The GCC Countries continue to respond to both disaster and chronic extreme poverty.

Royal Group Charity recognizes that extreme poverty is a complex and multidimensional phenomenon which causes severe consequences. People living in extreme poverty also tend to be in poorer health and lack basic employable skills.

The GCC road to a better Africa

GCC states have strengthened aid ties with various African states.

As well as GCC states generous donations to humanitarian appeals in Africa. Numerous GCC charities have operated throughout Africa since the 1980s. The Saudi International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) and the Kuwaiti African Muslims Agency (AMA) were among the first state-sponsored Islamic charities to work in Africa.

Although Gulf Arabs have traded with Africans for centuries, the global financial crisis from 2007 to 2008 motivated GCC states to deepen economic ties with Africa. With economies in the West slowing down, Africa’s fast-growing economies and expanding middle classes became an increasingly attractive prospect for investors across the world. Building economic ties in Africa helped Gulf states capitalize on geo strategic location, increase food security, and enhance political reforms. Expanding economic influence in Africa has provided GCC states with most important source of leverage to advance security and diplomatic goals.

GCC states have advanced strategies of economic diversification and reduced reliance on oil by investing in African markets. The UAE invested an estimated $11 billion in capital in Africa in 2016, overtaking Saudi Arabia to become the largest GCC investor and the second largest in the world after China. Gulf companies expertise in the energy sector creates attraction to African states seeking to develop their energy industries. Saudi Arabia recently invested $10 billion in Southern Africa’s energy sector. Meanwhile, the GCC ability to execute large-scale infrastructure projects is also appealing to rapidly-developing African states. Dubai’s DP World announced an initial $50 million investment in an inland logistics facility in Mali in July 2018, complementing larger infrastructure investments in West Africa such as the Dakar port and economic zone. Qatar also signed a $4 billion deal to manage a Red Sea port with Sudan in March 2018.

The GCC geo strategic location also explains why Africa has been a focus of GCC states economic activity. By focusing on infrastructure development and trade, GCC states are able to benefit from Asian trade and investment flows to Africa. China pledged $60 billion in financing to Africa in 2018 alone and increased its total trade with Africa by 180 percent from 2010 to 2017. The UAE has leveraged its superior shipping and port infrastructure to plug into this potential, becoming the largest GCC trader with Africa. The UAE imported roughly $5 billion of goods from Africa each year from 2010 to 2015, before increasing imports substantially to $23.9 billion in 2016. Africa’s growing importance to Emirati trade is apparent from an examination of its imports. As a share of the UAE’s total imports, those from Africa quadrupled in the last six years.

The GCC also identified investing in Africa as a way to achieve food security. The GCC considered agricultural investments in Central Asia and Latin America but determined that Africa’s rich and underdeveloped agricultural lands held the greatest promise. Africa’s geographic proximity to the Gulf was an advantage, it contains 60 percent of the world’s total uncultivated arable lands, and its water shortages were deemed surmountable with appropriate investments. Saudi Arabia is the top investor in agriculture in Africa, conducting large scale investments such as its purchase of 500,000 hectares of land in Tanzania in 2009. For Qatar, the most dependent of the GCC states on food imports. The Qatari government announced plans in 2018 to invest half a billion dollars in Sudan’s agricultural and food sectors. Qatar also entered into talks with Kenya in 2009 to lease 40,000 hectares of land in the Tana Delta.

As GCC states rapidly expand global footprint, and increase mediating role in Africa, it would continue to broaden and deepen ties with African states. To secure economic interests in an arena of greater international competition, enhance lateral engagement with African governments significantly to ensure that interventions are meeting African governments needs and priorities. Such engagement will help ensure that African governments continue to view the GCC as attractive partners and make interventions safer and more sustainable. Part of this approach should involve building people-to-people ties. The GCC would expand opportunities for educational exchange, training collaborations, and tourism links with countries in Africa to capitalize on the potential of young people in Africa and enhance their reputation more broadly.

This builds a better road to Africa and would contribute to the humanitarian needs and help strengthen the African economy to lead and secure a brighter Africa for the people.

Millions of people still live in poverty and hunger, and are threatened by conflict, instability and disease. Inequality is growing and widening the gap between the richest and the poorest. The lack of discipline, transparency and inclusive governance undermines citizens rights and investor’s confidence. The role of governments is vital in implementing those commitments. 

The GCC would continue to cooperate with Africa and help build a transparent road by investing and ensuring that poverty is completely eradicated Africa.

Bringing Hope To Children

 

 

Meeting the needs for education.

Royal Group Charity provides Housing, Opportunity, Protection and Education, to disadvantaged children in developing nations, by providing family housing, supporting local communities and facilitating access to quality education and learning materials.

In the developing world, there are several factors that create roadblocks to a child’s education. The countries that have the lowest enrollment rates are generally those that do not have free, universal primary and secondary education. Where primary education is free, enrollment rates are high but many children do not continue on to secondary school due to high school fees, or because they are forced to work or stay home to take care of siblings.

Lack of proper school facilities and transportation in rural areas often makes it difficult for children to attend school regularly. In addition, there is generally a shortage of qualified teachers. Diseases such as HIV and Malaria have a significant impact on home life, as does hunger, posing further challenges to a child’s education.

Royal Group Charity Foundation’s primary goal is to help children in developing countries gain the benefit of a complete education. We believe education creates change, not only improving the life of an individual child but also contributing to the development of the child’s community and their country.
(Message from our founder His Highness Prince Khalid Al-Sabah)

Education is a right. It is also the most requested service, and key, to helping communities move towards peace and prosperity. Supporting education is a recognition of people’s enormous potential and the right to a better future.

Everyone deserves an education regardless of age or gender, religion or physical capacity, ethnic group or displacement through conflict. Education is essential if people are to participate in the life of their own communities.

Kuwait international humanitarian efforts

Living up to its UN recognition as International Humanitarian Center, Kuwait continues to assist needy people in a number of countries around the world, distributing humanitarian aid to families and needy people.

Further aid comes after conducting a field survey in collaboration with local humanitarian organizations to specify those who deserve assistance in order to alleviate their suffering.

Kuwait has been working to assist the Yemeni people in all areas of education, health, shelter, food and water. 

Kuwait also donated million’s of dollars to finance water plant project as well as supporting health and education issues.

Kuwait’s support in charity and humanitarian work reaches the furthest places and supports and helps the poor and the needy and reaches to those who live in extreme poverty.

It’s a startling truth that can sometimes make us feel helpless.

Yet poverty can and must be fought.

Royal Group Charity Foundation is proud of the continuous love and support His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah carried out in 30 African Countries and all over the world.

We look forward to a brighter and more prosperous future for the world.

Please join us in the fight against poverty, together, we can make a huge difference for children and families living in poverty

(Please help us share and spread the love around the world)

Global Humanitarian Overview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over the past year, Royal Group Charity Foundation has been to 14 countries where people are caught up in major conflicts and disasters. Royal Group Charity engaged with parents who did not know where their children’s next meal would come from. We experienced families forced to run away from their homes and walk for weeks to find safety from armed conflict or persecution based on their ethnicity and religious beliefs. We listened to survivors of natural disasters whose homes and livelihoods have been destroyed. And heard from people who have somehow managed to survive the most brutal horrors of war and who continue to hold out hope for peace and a better future. We are witnessing extremely high levels of humanitarian need even as global wealth is higher than ever before. The Global Humanitarian Overview provided, for the first time, an analysis not just of how many people need humanitarian assistance, but a clearer understanding of why. Despite global economic gains, 10 percent of the world’s people are still living in extreme poverty. At least 2 billion people worldwide live in areas affected by fragility, conflict and violence, where the intersection of poverty, high population growth, environmental degradation, natural hazards and protracted conflict leave them especially vulnerable. In 2019, nearly 132 million people will need humanitarian assistance and protection, the majority because of the impact of conflict. The United Nations and partner organizations aim to assist nearly 94 million of them. The humanitarian response plans outlined in this year’s Global Humanitarian Overview are the result of in-depth, country-by-country analysis of the most comprehensive data available. Funding requirements are projected to be comparable to last year. While some crises have escalated, this year we also have better prioritization of the most vulnerable and severely affected people, and a stronger coordination with development partners to ensure a focused humanitarian response. Despite the challenges, the humanitarian system is more effective and impactful than it has ever been. We are better at identifying different groups’ specific needs in crises and quicker to respond when disasters strike. Response plans are more inclusive, comprehensive, innovative and prioritized. We have a better picture of needs and vulnerabilities. And we have dedicated networks in more than 20 countries to protect people from sexual exploitation and abuse. All of these factors allow us to design effective responses that save lives and protect livelihoods. Humanitarian aid cannot replace long-term political and development solutions that people in crises so desperately hope for. That is why we are working to mobilize the will, skills and creativity of the global community to end crises and promote development to help people become more resilient to those that can’t be avoided. In 2019, multi-year humanitarian plans and strategies are in place in 12 countries, which allow for greater alignment of humanitarian and development interventions, a focus on building resilience while meeting essential needs, and working together towards common medium- and longer-term objectives. Improved coordination between humanitarian and development partners is delivering results. In September 2018, the World Bank, the United Nations and cutting-edge technology partners launched the Famine Action Mechanism. The aim is to predict crises before they happen, and to trigger earlier funding for actions that may prevent them altogether. None of this would be possible without the thousands of aid workers and volunteers around the world, and the humanitarian organizations, governments and donors who make this life saving work possible. Royal Group Charity remains dedicated in doing it’s work around the world to fight the cause.
