From Sida’s web about the seminar:

In 2015, 82 million people in 37 countries are in need of humanitarian assistance. Never before have humanitarian needs been larger, pushing the humanitarian system to its limits - operationally and financially.

The aim of this Development Talks is to describe and discuss challenges to providing humanitarian support as needs are quickly growing. We will look at two major hinders for humanitarian responses: Operational challenges and lack of financing. How can we best support humanitarian assistance? In spite of the many challenges, we will also explore what works best when it comes to providing effective humanitarian support that reaches out rapidly and to many people.
