Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Address the Council
GENEVA (29 June 2016) - The Human Rights Council this morning heard an oral update by the Assistant Secretary-General on the situation of human rights in Ukraine, followed by an interactive dialogue, and the presentation of a report by the High Commissioner for Human Rights on the situation of human rights in Burundi, followed by an interactive dialogue.
Beans, cassava, sweet potatoes, maize and rice constitute the basic staple foods for the majority of the Burundian population. Beans are the main staple crop in Burundi; cassava, sweet potatoes, maize and rice are also very important, the former constituting the main source of protein for most low‐ and middle‐income households. Bujumbura, the capital and largest urban center in the country, functions as an assembly, wholesale and retail and main consumer market.
Staple Food Markets in East Africa: White maize is the main staple grain consumed in Tanzania, Kenya, and Ethiopia. In Uganda, white maize is grown mainly as a commercial crop for export in the region. Imported rice is a major staple for Djibouti and Somalia, which mainly consume belem—the imported red rice. Tanzania is also a major producer and source of rice in the region while Kenya and Uganda are minor producers. Both red and white sorghum are produced and consumed in the region.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), a country four times bigger than France, has gone through recurrent humanitarian crises for the last 20 years. In that context, Boniface N. Deagbo has been promoting Sphere standards for almost a decade.
The protracted relief and recovery operation (PRRO) and the country programme (CP) are facing serious resource shortfalls. Food for training activities under the PRRO have been suspended while prevention of stunting activities under the CP have been reduced because of funding shortfalls. Therefore, WFP requires immediate contributions to meet the increasing needs of vulnerable people in Burundi.
WFP’s main priority is to provide food assistance to refugees, safety net assistance to the most vulnerable and build national capacity to design and manage home-grown hunger solutions.
Sufficient resources are needed to provide food assistance to the growing number of refugees in camps and to treat and prevent malnutrition among children, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
School feeding in camps and in food insecure districts ensures children are getting meals, maintaining attendance and reduces dropouts.

Disease epidemics result in substantial ill health and loss of lives and therefore pose a threat to global health security, undermine socio-economic lives and destabilize societies.
