New CSIS Report Focuses On Humanitarian Landscape, Access Challenges

Center for Strategic & International Studies: Denial, Delay, Diversion: Tackling Access Challenges in an Evolving Humanitarian Landscape
In this new report, Jacob Kurtzer, deputy director and senior fellow at CSIS, and colleagues discuss the humanitarian landscape, the results of their Task Force on Humanitarian Access, and recommendations for the U.S. government. A summary of the report states, “As humanitarian emergencies become increasingly complex and protracted, blocked humanitarian access will only increase without urgent action. To ensure the ability of aid to reach those who need it most and to uphold the principles of international humanitarian law, the United States should elevate humanitarian access as a foreign policy priority and work to reconcile tensions between critical national security measures and the growing needs of vulnerable populations in fragile, conflict-affected states” (9/18).
