  • Mongolia Humanitarian Forum May 9, 2016

    The United Nations is pleased to join you today to mark Humanitarian Day in Mongolia. We recognize the significance of this occasion as the World Humanitarian Summit approaches in Istanbul later this month. The world is at a critical juncture. We are witnessing the highest level of humanitarian needs since the Second World War. The scale and frequency of natural disasters is growing, and climate change is increasing humanitarian stress. In the last two decades, 218 million people each year were affected by disasters; at an annual cost to the global economy that now exceeds US $300 billion. The cost of humanitarian assistance has also increased dramatically by 600% over the past decade. There is an urgent need to turn the tide.
