Common Operational Challenges

There are still information gaps with regards to humanitarian needs in all clusters, with ongoing efforts to collect more data for the 2020 Humanitarian Needs Overview.

More funding is urgently needed to maintain and further expand the response; many partners report critical funding gaps.

Logistical challenges related to delays in the importation of some supplies, the availability of transport and the shortage of fuel and electricity, among others, have impacted the response and access to affected people.

Greater operational capacity is needed, including the presence of international NGOs.

Greater communication and understanding of principled humanitarian action remain a priority in order to promote greater acceptance among stakeholders and facilitate access.
