A Global Call for Support and Action: Responding to El Niño

This was the sixth significant Member States briefing on El Niño since October 2015. More than 45 Member States and over 200 humanitarian and development partners participated.

The ERC urged donors to act now to support the national and international response to avert the crisis from worsening, stressing that the longer we wait, the more people will suffer, the more development gains will be lost, and the more costly the response will be. Urgent support must be provided to the 60 million people already affected by El Niño.
