Following is UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ message on World Humanitarian Day, to be observed in New York on 19 August:
New York, 18 August 2017): At an event today to mark World Humanitarian Day, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres called for global action to protect civilians trapped in armed conflict and joined UN staff to symbolically “stand together” with all those affected by conflict.
Insecurity in Central African Republic has lead to new influx of people seeking refuge in the region.
Over the last week more than 10,000 people have arrived in the town of Yakoma in Nord-Ubangi province. Since mid-May, it is estimated that 65,000 asylum seekers have entered the Northern part of the country in addition to the 103,000 already registered refugees.
(Dakar, 18 August 2017): Persistent conflict and violence targeting aid workers and civilians in West and Central Africa make it one of the world’s most volatile regions for humanitarian action, regional directors of UN agencies and NGO partners warned ahead of the commemoration of World Humanitarian Day, on 19 August.
Our methodology uses 9 indicators, grouped under 3 categories:
Access of humanitarian actors to affected population
Access of people in need to humanitarian aid
Security and physical constraints Each category is measured through proxy indicators, such as violence against personnel, denial of needs, or active hostilities.
Data is collected at the country level and may therefore not show disparities between sub-regions.
By Jane Backhurst, Christian Aid’s Senior Advisor for Humanitarian Policy and Advocacy
On World Humanitarian Day, August 19, the global community is being urged to take concrete steps to protect all those caught up in conflict, from civilians and aid workers, to refugees and internally displaced people.
