Launch of the Global Humanitarian Overview 2020

The Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO) 2020 launched on 4 December 2019. The GHO is the most comprehensive, authoritative and evidence-based assessment of world humanitarian needs. (PDF Version)

The Global Humanitarian Overview is the most comprehensive, authoritative and evidence-based assessment of world humanitarian needs. The GHO is based on detailed analysis of comprehensive data from a wide range of sources, and face-to-face interviews with hundreds of thousands of people directly affected by humanitarian crises across the globe. Our global plan facilitates effective, rapid and coordinated responses to humanitarian crises, supporting prompt life-saving action by humanitarian agencies, generously financed by governmental, private and individual donors.

The global event was held in Geneva with simultaneous launches in Berlin, Brussels, London and Washington, D.C. These events are 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.
