Humanitarian aid is largely concentrated in crises that are protracted or recurrent. In 2016, 60% of global humanitarian financing went to just 10 countries. Almost three-quarters of this aid went to long-term recipients (where a crisis has lasted eight years or more) and 86% went to crises that had endured over three years. In many of these countries, such as the four studied for this evaluation, crises have endured for decades but humanitarian aid has remained annualised and short-term.
