Devex: Humanitarian crises where media is missing in action
“Media plays an important role in bringing attention to the most devastating disasters around the world. But in the eyes of media, not all crises are created equal. For the third year running, CARE has released its report on the 10 most underreported humanitarian crises of 2018. … Those in Africa dominate the list. … Outside Africa, the impact of category five Typhoon Mangkhut on Luzon Island in the Philippines last September was overshadowed by other disasters in the region … But the Haiti food crisis — created by frequent natural disasters, poverty, and political instability — was identified as the most underreported humanitarian crisis in 2018…” (Cornish, 2/21).
