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.
