2016 was a challenging year. The wars in Syria and Iraq continued to displace millions of people. In Africa’s Sahel region, weak state institutions and climate change helped fuel armed conflict, human rights abuses and extreme poverty, creating the world’s largest interconnected crisis.Millions were on the brink of famine in Yemen, and in parts of South Sudan, a famine was declared in the beginning of 2017.
