Local humanitarian agencies are crucial for ensuring no one in need is left behind, according to the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) at the launch of the World Disasters Report and Bangladesh operational plan at a city hotel on Monday.

The World Disasters Report, titled “Leaving no-one behind: The international humanitarian sector must do more to respond to the needs of the world’s most vulnerable people”, said that millions of people living in crisis may not be receiving the humanitarian assistance they desperately need, says a press release.

The report shows that a lack of money is not the only issue limiting how many people in need are identified, reached, and supported.
