Reports from humanitarian organizations working in Ukraine are dire and reveal that a humanitarian disaster on an epic scale is unfolding.
The United Nations (UN) and other organizations estimate 12 million of Ukraine’s population are in need of assistance, 4.1 million have been displaced to neighbouring countries, and 6.4 million have become internally displaced.
Gillian Triggs, the assistant secretary-general and assistant high commissioner for protection at the UNHCR, joins other experts to discuss the humanitarian situation in Ukraine.
The panel considers:
What are the greatest needs in Ukraine now?
How can aid agencies meet those needs?
What are the short and long-term implications of the crisis for Ukraine and Europe?
How do international organizations work with local NGOs to provide food, medical aid and shelter?
This event is part of a regular series of events offering insight and analysis from experts and policymakers on how the war is affecting Ukraine, the region and the world.
This event is part of Chatham House’s ongoing work on the future of conflict.
