Access to people in need remains one of the greatest challenges for humanitarian organizations working to reach vulnerable communities. Shrinking humanitarian space and deteriorating security has left many of those most in need with limited or no assistance. Given the operational conditions of highly dynamic security, political, and conflict situations, humanitarians are preparing for increasing complexity in reaching the most vulnerable populations in hard-to-reach areas.
