Humanitarian crises affect communities and people across the world, causing high levels of mortality and malnutrition, leading to the spread of diseases epidemics and health emergencies, and arresting economic growth. Several causes may trigger a humanitarian crisis: political events, such as armed conflicts, coups, and ethnic and religious persecution, and environmental catastrophes, such as floods, earthquakes and typhoons.
This review looks at economic development interventions, such as livelihoods programmes, market support programmes, and local area development projects. Economic development interventions support economic development in the area in which humanitarian emergencies occur. It focuses on interventions and programmes that aim to bridge the transition from emergency response to the development of local economic systems post-conflict and post-disaster in low- and middle-income countries
