Heavy rains may lead to flooding in East and West Africa, dryness persists in Central America

  1. Consistent and above average rain over the past few weeks has led to moisture surpluses throughout much of Eastern Africa. Torrential rain is forecast to continue over western Sudan and the highlands of Ethiopia and Eritrea, which is likely to raise the River Nile and Al Gash River levels further and potentially result in flooding over many areas of Sudan during the next week.

SUMMARY

The current refugee crisis is the greatest humanitarian challenge to have faced the European Union since its foundation. Although the outcome of the referendum on 23 June 2016 was that the UK should leave the EU, the UK remains a full member of the EU, with all the responsibilities that entails, until the final withdrawal agreement is ratified. It is vital, both on moral grounds and in order to help maintain good relations with the other 27 Member States, that the UK Government should participate fully in EU action to resolve this humanitarian crisis.

Hunger: More than a moral outrage

The statistics are shocking, so utterly appalling as to be beyond comprehension: 780 million people deprived of sufficient nourishment; three million under-fives dead from hunger in just one year; and, 66 million primary school children sent to class every day on empty stomachs.

Tragically, this is not the trailer for some postapocalyptic sci-fi blockbuster, but hard truths about the world we live in.
