Ukraine and the impact on aid to other crises

Posted on 24 November 2022

Maruf Mohammed Shehab, from Action Aid Bangladesh, and others have highlighted that the overwhelming humanitarian aid to Ukraine, impacts the flows of funds to other crises, such as the protracted Rohingya crisis, and climate events. 

"When the floods hit this year in Sylhet, we saw devastating floods that occur once in 120 years. We [Action Aid] saw a drastic drop in the allocation of funding from major donors who provide humanitarian aid to disasters like this," said Shehab.
