$12B Funding Gap For Humanitarian Emergencies, U.N. Data Show

The Guardian: World Humanitarian Day: anxiety grows over $12bn crisis funding shortfall
“This year, the U.N. has asked for $19.43bn (£12.38bn) to deal with humanitarian crises in countries such as Syria, South Sudan, and Nepal, but … [d]ata from the U.N.’s financial tracking service shows a $12bn funding gap for the global body’s emergency appeals, meaning donors have only covered 35 percent of the total funds requested so far this year…” (Anderson, 8/19).
