Snapshot 25 August–1 September 2015
Papua New Guinea: 1.8 million people have been affected by prolonged dry spell and frost in the Highlands region; 1.3 million are reported to be most at risk. Crops have been destroyed, and several chools and health facilities have been closed due to water shortages. The affected population is reported to be resorting to less reliable sources of drinking water.
REGIONAL SITUATION ANALYSIS
In the month of July, new CAR refugees have been registered in Cameroon and the Republic of the Congo (RoC), amounting to a total of 468,511. At the same time, the situation of internal displacement has seen a decrease in the number of IDPs (368,8591).
The Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) has a long way to go in preventing regional crises. Many challenges remain in making the infrastructure (especially the Central African Early Warning Mechanism and the Central African Multinational Force) operational and effective, and there is a gap between ambition and reality.
The terrorist organisation Boko Haram will determine Cameroon’s medium-term domestic and security agenda. Together with an underestimated structural propensity to crisis and political conflict, this presents the country with a double challenge. The ability of Cameroonian state and society to master both is far lower than talk about this “regional anchor of stability” would have it. Europe should start developing ideas on crisis prevention.
Depuis 2 ans, des milliers de réfugiés centrafricains viennent en masse de l’autre côté de la frontière camerounaise pour s’éloigner des exactions des groupes armés. Ayant fait l’objet de violences ou ayant perdu leurs sources de revenus, ils ont quitté leur terre natale pour être accueillis dans le petit village de Gado et dans le grand site de réfugiés qui le côtoie, où SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL répond aux besoins de ces populations qui ont besoin de manger, de boire, de s’abriter. Témoignages sur place.
WFP Launches UNHAS Special Operation in Nigeria
With the escalation of violence in northeastern Nigeria and neighbouring countries, WFP launched its United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) in Nigeria on 17 August. This Special Operation is established to ensure humanitarian access to the North-East through the provision of air transport services as well as ensuring capacity to evacuate humanitarian staff when required.
WFP’s C.A.R. Regional Emergency Operation (EMOP) 200799 began on 1 January 2015 and spans across five affected countries. More than 870,000 beneficiaries were reached in July through the EMOP, representing 80 percent of planned figures. In August, WFP is targeting more than one million beneficiaries across the five countries.
The liberation of most of the communities in the North-East from the occupation of Boko Haram insurgents, coupled with the massive return of Nigerians from the Republics of Cameroun and Niger have changed the humanitarian outlook from emergency relief intervention to rehabilitation, reconstruction and recovery of the affected persons and communities.
A. Situation analysis
Description of the disaster
Following the overthrow of President François Bozizé, a major humanitarian crisis began in May 2013 that led to the displacement of thousands of CAR nationals. Many fled to neighbouring countries like the DRC, Congo, Chad and Cameroon. They arrived in very miserable conditions; some with wounds, and others malnourished.
“This is the time for Nigeria to be very vigilant, alert and to maintain its extraordinary efforts,” says Dr Arshad Quddus from the World Health Organization.
Dr Arshad Quddus is the coordinator of the Polio Strategy Support and Coordination unit at the World Health Organization (WHO). In August, he took part in the meeting of the Expert Review Committee (ERC) in Nigeria. Here, he speaks about the extraordinary efforts in Nigeria to date, the work still to be done, and what motivates him to eradicate polio.
What was the purpose of the ERC meeting in Nigeria last week?
Snapshot 11 August – 25 August 2015
Haiti: Insecurity has increased since legislative elections. Violence and intimidation were reported at many polling stations and a second round of voting is planned, following low voter turnout. Food security has deteriorated as a result of prolonged drought conditions since the beginning of 2015: poor households in Sud, Sud-Est, Nord-Est and Artibonite will remain in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) food security outcomes through December. Recent cholera rates are triple those of the comparable time period in 2014.
From Nigeria to Cameroon: stories of survival
Civilians continue to suffer the worst of the recurrent, violent attacks in north-east Nigeria and the Lake Chad region. Thousands have died in brutal raids and suicide bombings. In Minawao camp, the main refugee settlement in Cameroon’s Far North Region, more than 45,000 Nigerians have found refuge. And there are more families arriving every day.
