Future-Forward Aid

Our changing world—with a population rising to 8.5 billion by 2030, diseases fueled by climate change and globalization, and newer threats like cyberattacks—will require dramatic changes in humanitarian aid, according to an Action Against Hunger report.
The report maps out 23 situations aid agencies will need to adapt to, from more crises in wealthier countries to glaring pay and seniority gaps between local and expat aid workers—amounting to fundamental shifts. Neil Boothby, a professor at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, said, “This is a big business … It [will be] difficult for them to move beyond their business model.”
