UN humanitarian chief urges more burden sharing

With the UN’s emergency fund approaching the end of its third year of operations, UN humanitarian chief John Holmes laments that a small group of donors continues to supply most of the money. Just this month, the United States made its first, modest contribution to the fund.

Holmes also raises concern about the narrowing of the independent humanitarian space.
