Humanitarian trends and trajectories to 2030: North and South-East Asia

Research report

Written by Katie Peters, Emma Lovell, Elizabeth Carabine, Alice Caravani

Research report

North and South-East Asia will face a new set of humanitarian challenges from 2015 to 2030. The region is vulnerable to cumulative risks, with increasing urbanisation,
population and asset exposure, new infectious diseases and climate extremes. Projections show the region moving to a ‘severe’ level of vulnerability, compounded by drought-related water and food shortages, which are anticipated to exacerbate
existing malnutrition. Migration and displacement will continue, with figures predicted to exceed the 71 million displaced persons in North and South-East Asia between 2008 and 2012.
