The coronavirus now has a foothold in 216 countries, areas or territories. Some of these are countries that are already in crisis due to conflicts, natural disasters and climate change. They are home to a large number of people in need of emergency assistance.

Through these challenging times, OCHA is determined that its crucial life-saving work is sustained. More than 100 million people already rely on support from the United Nations’ humanitarian agencies. OCHA’s top priority is to ensure that we do the best we can to keep providing life-saving help for those people, while supporting the wider system’s response to COVID-19.

This Progress Report will present the collective achievements the UN and NGOs have made thus far. It will also examine the links between the GHRP and the Global Humanitarian Overview 2021; the scourge of gender-based violence; education and child protection; and provide funding and resource mobilization analysis and an update on pooled fund support to the crisis. The next report will be issued at the end of October.
