AlertNet is a free global humanitarian news service provided by the Thomson Reuters Foundation. AlertNet covers natural disasters, conflicts, refugees, hunger, diseases and the human impacts of climate change. Content comes from AlertNet reporters around the globe, Reuters news bureaux and 60 specialist news content partners.

A global team of 25 journalists provides information on the most pressing humanitarian issues of our time. They report the world’s under-reported stories, the ‘forgotten’ crises that rarely make mainstream headlines.

The news service has become an essential[citation needed] tool for relief workers, donors, policy makers, students, journalists and the general public.
