Italy hosts virtual G20 summit to discuss looming humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan

Afghanistan is in the spotlight as global powers gather for virtual talks on the crisis-torn country. Italy is hosting the G20 meeting, which is expected to focus on urgent aid and security concerns in the region. Afghanistan’s new rulers have proven a key obstacle, as many G20 countries do not want to establish any direct relations with the Taliban. Qatar has said recognition of the new government is not as important as tackling the worsening disaster on the ground.

G20 countries discuss how to respond to the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan | DW News

The G20 countries plus Qatar are holding a special summit today to discuss how best to respond to the looming humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. With the departure of foreign troops and the return of the Taliban, at least half a million Afghans have been displaced.
An estimated 18 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. And the health care system is close to collapse. The shortage of necessities across the country was triggered when key international sources abruptly cut off financial aid to Afghanistan after the Taliban takeover. That aid once accounted for the majority of the country’s spending. Members of the G20 are set to discuss how to channel money and resources into the country without placing them directly in the hands of the Taliban.

What impact does the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan have on the newly formed Taliban regime?

The World Health Organisation has called on international donors to resume funding of Afghanistan’s healthcare program, amid fears of a humanitarian crisis. They say the country’s already-fragile healthcare system was overwhelmed – with hundreds of thousands of vulnerable Afghans deprived of access to care. International funding was suspended when the Taliban took over the country – over fears that the money would be used to support the new administration.

Afghanistan faces major humanitarian crisis says UN | DW News

The United Nations is hosting a donor conference for Afghanistan in Geneva. The aim is to raise more than half a billion euros. The UN says that money is desperately needed to avert a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, following the Taliban takeover. Half of the population – around 18 million people – are dependent on foreign aid, and that number might grow.
To feed hungry mouths, people are reliant on handouts. While others continue to flee, many of the people left behind are facing a desperate situation. The UN says more than half a million have been internally displaced this year – forced from their homes as the Taliban swept across the country. Some were fleeing another menace: drought.
In the northwest province of Badghis, the animals are sick and the crops have dried out.
Across the country, the drought has exacerbated existing food shortages. Millions are now at risk of starvation, prompting the UN to issue a stark warning.
Aid organizations and governments are scrambling to fill the gap. Flights from Pakistan bring flour, cooking oil, and emergency medical supplies. But much more is needed to avert catastrophe for millions of vulnerable Afghans.
