This year's hurricane season in the southern United States has made it clear just how much damage natural disasters can do, even when there is strong infrastructure in place.
Natural disasters have the ability to undo years of development in the Global South. Drought, flooding, and a number of other weather-related disasters can leave millions without the proper resources to survive. Such disasters limit sanitation and hygiene (WASH), access to clean water, food security and access to healthcare. Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is reduced and it can take years to rebuild those systems. This newsletter looks at natural disasters, preparedness strategies and reports on the current state of the SDGs and humanitarian aid.
