Conflicts, disasters and natural resources can no longer be considered national concerns, they have become global concerns. More than 21.3 million people - roughly the population of Australia - are refugees. Water scarcity and climate change have added to international tensions, with 100 million people affected by the impact of El Niño and epidemics such as Ebola and Zika
