The sustainability of aid to famine struck areas
Some parts of the world is already over-populated as far as the area is concerned. In these cases humanitarian aid aggravates the situation by increasing the population, with no end to when aid will no longer be needed. People in these areas should be educated to reduce family sizes to reduce populations to levels that can be supported by the area/country. The problem will never get solved by pouring in more aid - I know this sounds inhumane, but such is life.

Aid to war torn areas

Providing aid to ware torn areas is a double edged sword; Much of the aid will end up in the hands of the military/militants prolonging the war, which will most likely cost more lives than the famine.
