Cut away: Global Humanitarian Response 2014 launch – general shots

1. SOUNDBITE (English) - Valerie Amos, UN Under-Secretary-General for
Humanitarian Affairs
and Emergency Relief Coordinator: “This year we aim to reach at least
52 million people with essential life-saving aid including millions of
Syrians who are displaced and in urgent need of food, shelter and
healthcare, both inside the country and across the region.”

Cut away: Wide and long shots of press conference.

2. SOUNDBITE (English) - Valerie Amos, UN Under-Secretary-General for
Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator: “The plans also
include help for the millions of Filipinos who are struggling to
rebuild their homes and communities after Typhoon Haiyan. And for the
crisis in the Central African Republic where conflict and displacement
have affected the entire country.”

Cut away: Wide shots journalists at press conference.

3. SOUNDBITE (English) - Valerie Amos, UN Under-Secretary-General for
Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator: “One of the big
issues for us, looking forward, is that these crises are becoming more
complex so we are seeing major natural disasters in conflict countries,
so the complexity and scale of what we are doing is rising all the
time.”

Cut away: Medium shot and close up of journalists.

4. SOUNDBITE (English) - Valerie Amos, UN Under-Secretary-General for
Humanitarian Affairs
and Emergency Relief Coordinator: “The plans total 12.9 billion to
reach everyone we hope to help in 2014. This is the largest amount
we’ve ever had to request at the start of the year. 6.5 billion of this
will support our efforts in Syria and in neighbouring countries and,
again, this is the largest ever appeal for a single crisis.”

Cut away: Medium shot and close up of journalists at press conference.

5. SOUNDBITE (English) - António Guterres, UN High Commissioner for
Refugees: “We are talking of a few billion dollars. I’m sure that the
amount of money being spent in the conflicts is much higher than the
amount of money we ask for the humanitarian aspects. Probably the
totality of the humanitarian budget in the world – maybe around 20
billion dollars – is the equivalent of a bail out of a relatively small
bank in a European country.”

Cut away: Medium and close up shots of journalists.

6. SOUNDBITE (English) - Valerie Amos, UN Under-Secretary-General for
Humanitarian Affairs
and Emergency Relief Coordinator: “Even if there were an end to the
violence in Syria tomorrow we would still have a major humanitarian
crisis on our hands.”

regions assess needs and formulate plans before requesting funds from
member states and donor organizations.
