Humanitarian assistance in 2012

People affected by humanitarian crises receive help in many ways. Local communities, national and local government, civil society and the private sector almost always provide the most immediate help. Local humanitarian assistance is rarely measured and difficult to quantify, but may be the most significant type during most crises. National assistance is sometimes measured but is difficult to compare across countries. Often, assistance is measured in terms of funding, which is ultimately turned into organizational capacity to implement projects that are intended to help affected people.
