Humanitarian Funding Update January 2020

The Global Humanitarian Overview 2020 published on 4 December 2019 announced funding requirements of $28.8 billion to assist 108.8 million of the 166.7 million people in need in 53 countries. These figures have increased slightly in January due to the publication of the Djibouti Flash Appeal.

This year’s release of the Global Humanitarian Overview was marked by simultaneous launches in Geneva, Berlin, Brussels, London and Washington, D.C. These events were part of a global strategy to engage decision-makers and humanitarian actors in highlighting the key themes covered in the 2020 GHO, encourage generous contributions to humanitarian response, and amplify the voices of affected people.
