For the last two decades, causes of death of people around the world attributable to war and genocide have increased due to major wars around the world. Even after the Cold War, complex humanitarian emergencies (CHE) – profound social crises wherein numerous people suffer from war, disease, hunger, and displacement – have not lessened. New conflicts have arisen, while CHEs are still a widespread source of problems. These problems include hunger, disease, and displacement – resulting from economic downfall and at the same time killing prospective developments. There is a serious need to avoid these catastrophes and this may be done by knowing the cause of these problems and making a proposal on how to reduce the CHEs. It is shown from different countries that these problems resulted from different factors, such as economic, political, environmental, and ethnic.
