India Humanitarian Emergency

India is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world. The intensity and frequency of disasters such as floods and earthquakes have increased in the last decade, often leaving large numbers of people in need of humanitarian assistance. Growing vulnerability to natural disasters risks can be associated with factors such as population growth, urbanisation, industrialisation, environmental degradation and climate change. When disasters occur, UNFPA supports national and sub-national authorities with the provision of sexual and reproductive health services and distributes dignity kits to meet the urgent hygiene needs of affected people.
