Sir Mark Lowcock’s book draws on his behind-the-scenes experience as the world’s most senior humanitarian official. As UN Relief Chief, he witnessed the biggest explosion of need in modern history. Wars, droughts, storms, floods, earthquakes and Covid 19 almost overwhelmed the UN. And now millions of refugees have streamed across the borders of Ukraine. Part memoir and part manifesto, this extraordinary book depicts brutality, misery and inhumanity, but it is also an uplifting story of lives saved and suffering reduced as well as a detailed, practical agenda for solving crises faster and better in the future.
