The 2014 Development Initiatives’ Global Humanitarian Assistance report highlighted that the international community responded to the dramatic scale of need in 2013 with an unprecedented $22 billion in funding. However even at this record level, over a third of needs outlined went unmet. Fresh thinking is needed on how to finance people’s real needs and GHA welcomes the Future Humanitarian Financing project’s role in this global discussion.
