The New Humanitarian delivers unique, authoritative and independent reporting from the front lines of crises to inspire and produce a more effective humanitarian response.
The number of people affected by humanitarian crises has almost doubled over the past decade. Climate change, population growth, volatile markets, water scarcity, sectarianism and the mushrooming of armed groups and extremists are pushing more and more communities to the edge.
The unprecedented number of concurrent emergencies has exposed serious weaknesses in the current international emergency aid apparatus: financing is unsustainable; local communities do not have enough of a voice; and needs are not adequately met. It is a critical time of change for the multi-billion-dollar international humanitarian sector, which is under pressure to reform the way aid is delivered.
Core to a vision of increased accountability, transparency and efficiency in the international relief industry is an independent voice of analysis and critique. Yet mainstream media coverage of international affairs has been declining steeply over the last two decades; and there is still a major disconnect between the voices of those most affected by crises and decision-makers sitting in New York and Geneva.
The New Humanitarian fills this gap. We have been a leading source of credible, in-depth, field-based news about crises for two decades. And with our newly independent stance, our editorial voice is bolder; our reach is expanding; and our role is ever more critical.
