Warnings to heed to avoid more victims

According to a report released by OXFAM, entitled Crises in a New World Order,  prospects for the International humanitarian response system do not appear positive. The organisation states in its report that if resources remain unavailable close to disasters and there is a lack of investment to improve preparedness, the number of people affected by crises will increase significantly in coming years.
The organization recognises that actors such as governments and agencies have improved their emergency-response. However, Oxfam underlines that this is not enough as it is “too little”  and “often determined by the vagaries of media and political interest rather than level of human need”.
