HAR 2007 home
The Humanitarian Action Report 2007 outlines UNICEF’s appeal for children and women in 33 emergencies around the world.
Emergencies, in the form of natural disasters and new or protracted conflict, continued to extract a toll on the lives of children and women around the world. Massive flooding in the Horn of Africa and multiple typhoons in South Asia were typical of the ever more frequent occurrence of natural disasters that have affected thousands of families in 2006. In Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, the occupied Palestinian territory, Sri Lanka and the Sudan, women and children continue to be impacted by the reverberating crossfire of conflict.
