On 2 December 2021, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Sweden and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency will host one of six sequential launches in Stockholm to present the Global Humanitarian Overview 2022.
The GHO launch in Stockholm will focus on the impact of climate change and conflict on food security. Life-threatening acute hunger is at an unprecedented level globally, and 41 million people worldwide are only one slight shock away from famine. Over 60 percent of the people facing acute hunger live in countries affected by conflict. At the same time, climate change is a threat multiplier for both conflict and hunger and is likely to dwarf conflict as the main cause of hunger tomorrow. The high-level panel will provide insights into how humanitarian organisations should respond to combined crises of conflict, climate and environment and adapt to ensure a more sustainable humanitarian impact.
Please register here by 29 November. The event will be held virtual and in-person (hybrid). It will be live-streamed via www.webtv.un.org.

Our panel will reflect on factors that give rise to sexual violence, persistent gaps in state and multilateral efforts as well as the effective prevention and response strategies that have been put in place.
A nine-year-old girl is sold to a 50-year-old man for $2000. This is Afghanistan today. But it was Iraq a few years ago, and Uganda before that. The horror of sexual violence that threatens the lives of girls and women, as well as many boys and men in today’s wars, is no longer an unknown. In resolution 1325 and 1820, the UN Security Council specifically noted that sexual violence is a strategy of conflict and that such violence, further inflames and exacerbates warfare. Despite the prevalence of such resolutions, sexual violence is not adequately addressed in peace processes nor prevented in crises contexts, and the services and responses for victims and survivors remains limited in humanitarian aid efforts.

The Soufan Center invites you to join us for a webinar entitled, “Promise and Peril in Afghanistan? Taliban, IS-K, and the Human Security Dimension.” Taking place on December 7, 2021 from 11:00am – 12:30pm ET, the webinar will examine the complex security dynamics in Afghanistan which have been further exacerbated by the Islamic State Khorasan (IS-K), complications in the delivery of humanitarian assistance, and an intransigent Taliban whose actions threaten to compromise what gains were made on human rights and gender equality over the past two decades. Expectations of further insecurity and instability as IS-K and the Taliban vie for legitimacy and control of the narratives of governance make for ominous predictions for Afghanistan. Regional dynamics will be key, and lessons learned from international action suggests that networks of practitioners and civil society organizations may be important fora for mitigating crises.
Through a moderated interactive session, panelists will explore the human rights and security impacts for Afghanistan, regional, and international partners. With the prospect of several states recognizing the Taliban regime, what are the key challenges and opportunities now in Afghanistan? The Soufan Center builds on its extensive analyses in reports, IntelBriefs, and the media to present this virtual discussion, bringing together researchers, analysts, and practitioners for a unique and timely discussion.
