The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) released the datasets behind their new report report World Humanitarian Data and Trends 2014 to let users explore data about humanitarian crises around the the world. The purpose of the report is to provide policymakers, researchers, and aid workers with a consolidated data resource to drive policy and operational decision making. OCHA published the datasets on the Humanitarian Data Exchange, a platform devoted to making humanitarian data publicly accessible.
