Increases in conflict, displacement, persistent drought, and water scarcity, and spikes in food prices are threatening lives and driving a massive humanitarian crisis across multiple countries around the globe. The global Food Security, Health, Nutrition, and WASH Clusters — humanitarian organizations working together in each of these sectors — are united in calling for all partners to urgently step up, align and implement the most pressing interventions required to address the overwhelming increase of needs to save lives and protect livelihoods.
Together, we must urgently act to meet the needs of those in crisis and work jointly and actively to avert the global hunger crisis, save lives, and build resilience.
We highly encourage national coordination platforms and partners to share this statement widely among your networks, to better advocate for inter-sectoral response and work actively to prevent millions of people from spiraling into famine. Read the statement here.
