What will be front page news this year?

It’s always interesting to find stories that aren’t in the main headline news, and I was reading yesterday about some of the forgotten crises set to escalate in the coming year.

These are just some of the underlying ‘silent emergencies’ that are threatening millions of people around the world. I will be researching a few of these and learning more about what is going on in each situation, but if you’d like a brief summary, or to read more now, here is a useful and concise report.
