Where is everyone? Report by MSF

Last week, Médecins Sans Frontières published a critical report on the limitations and deficiencies of the international aid response to crises. Some good work is taking place, and lives are being saved, but much more can, and should be done, to reach those people most in need.

In 2016 the World Humanitarian Summit will bring together global experts in aid to consider the structure and funding of humanitarian work in the future. In advance of this important meeting, MSF published ‘Where is Everyone?’, a report which diagnoses some of the key issues inherent in the international response to humanitarian crises.

Three in-depth case studies from South Sudan, DRC and Jordan are analysed which identify a number of key findings in relation to the performance of the humanitarian system in responding to all three displacement emergencies examined. Especially UNHCR, the refugee agency of the UN, receives quite a lot of criticism on its modus operandi, but other aid organizations are discussed as well.
