WHO has an essential role to play in supporting Member States to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies with public health consequences. An Emergency Response Framework (ERF) was developed to clarify WHO’s roles and responsibilities in this regard and to provide a common approach for its work in emergencies. Ultimately, the ERF requires WHO to act with urgency and predictability to best serve and be accountable to populations affected by emergencies. ERF describes WHO’s internal grading process for emergencies.
Afghanistan: The humanitarian situation in Kunduz is deteriorating as fighting for control of the city continues. Aid organisations have withdrawn, after a Médecins Sans Frontières hospital was bombed in an airstrike, killing 22 and injuring 37.
Burundi: At least eight civilians were killed in Bujumbura over the weekend as political violence persists, and people continue to flee. Some 128,000 people are reliant on food assistance: in some of the areas affected by insecurity, food prices are up to 95% higher than average.
• Plus de 1 400 000 bénéficiaires de l’assistance alimentaire en août
• Des productions bonnes à moyennes de 43 pour cent et de 80 pour cent selon les hypothèses d’arrêt des pluies le 15 ou le 30 septembre
• Tendance à la baisse de l’ampleur des inondations entre 2013 et 2015.
• Le budget du SRP réduit de 5 pour cent suite à sa révision à mi-parcours
IOM Shelter Operations
IOM’s unique position as an intergovernmental or- ganization allows it to work with quality and scale in natural disasters, conflict, and complex emer- gency settings, delivering urgent humanitarian needs. In this capacity, IOM has both operational and coordination roles, and works with partners through all phases of preparedness and response in support of national authorities. Since 2005, IOM has implemented shelter and non-food items (NFI) projects in over 40 countries.
Les perspectives actuelles sont favorables pour des récoltes moyennes à bonnes au Sahel
La régularité des pluies depuis mi-juillet dans les zones soudaniennes et sahéliennes a résorbé une bonne partie du retard d’installation de la saison et le développement des cultures et des pâturages est en général satisfaisant. Toutefois, les pluies intenses en août-septembre ont occasionné des inondations localisées.
Super El Niño and climate change cause crop failures putting millions at risk of hunger
At least ten million poor people face hunger this year and next due to both droughts and erratic rains influenced by climate change and the likely development of a ‘super El Niño’.
- Suppressed rainfall continues in the Gulf of Guinea region.
- Dryness worsens throughout parts of Ethiopia.
1) While a recent increase in August precipitation has led to more favorable ground moisture, a delayed onset and uneven rainfall distribution observed during the June-September season may negatively impact cropping and pastoral conditions in the region.
Le 23 septembre, le président Michel Kafando et son gouvernement de transition ont été réintégrés, mettant fin à un coup d'État par les forces de la garde présidentielle une semaine plus tôt. Le gouvernement a ordonné le démantèlement et le désarmement de la garde présidentielle et gelé les avoirs du leader du coup.
7 TUÉS DANS DES ATTAQUES
On 23 September, transitional President Michel Kafando and his government were reinstated, ending a coup by the presidential guard forces a week earlier.
The government has ordered the dismantling and disarmament of the presidential guards and frozen the assets of the coup leader.
El Salvador: More than 100,000 farmers are estimated to be affected by crop losses due to a prolonged dry-spell. Up to 60% of the total maize crop has been lost in the affected areas. An estimated 156,000 people are facing Crisis (IPC Phase 3) food security outcomes, mainly in eastern and western regions.
2.5 million people displaced by crisis in Lake Chad Basin. Over 2.1 million IDPs reported in Nigeria alone across several states.
Elections in October in Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire and CAR. Burkina elections likely to be postponed.
Ebola infections in Sierra Leone and Guinea decline, no new outbreak in Liberia.
More than 300,000 people affected by floods in Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone
Heavy rainfall expected to provide some long-term dryness relief in Central America
Africa Weather Hazards
Significantly aboveaverage seasonal rainfall has led to saturated ground conditions in several regions of West Africa. Heavy rainfall is forecast to continue across the region during the next week, which is expected to sustain the risk of flooding.
Humanitarian air services are a lifeline for millions of vulnerable people in humanitarian crises where quick and safe access is vital to save lives.
Due to the lack of reliable roads, ports and other infrastructure, access to many crises by land or water is difficult, if not impossible. Humanitarian air services are often the only way to get access to remote places and reach people in need.
In addition to transporting humanitarian supplies and workers, humanitarian air services perform medical and security evacuations.
The rainfall situation has improved markedly in most parts of the region. However, some areas particularly the south of Benin, Ghana and Togo, northwest Mali, central Mauritania, northeast Niger and northwest Chad still experiencing rainfall deficits.
Livestock remains affected by the long lean period especially in areas that have experienced delayed onset of the rainy season (southern Mauritania and Mali border, northern Senegal and eastern Chad).
Bangladesh: 1.5 million people are affected by flooding, which has displaced around 320,000 people in the areas of Cox's Bazar, Chittagong, and Bandarban. Shelter, WASH and food security are key priorities. 15 out 24 rivers are over danger levels as heavy rainfall continues.
Libya: An estimated 2,244 people have died this year as a result of conflict, and nearly one-third of the country’s population is affected. Humanitarian access remains severely restricted.
Little relief expected for anomalously dry areas of East Africa and Hispaniola
Africa Weather Hazards
Significantly above-average rainfall since early August has led to saturated ground conditions and localized flooding in several regions of West Africa. Heavy rainfall is forecast to continue across the region during the next week, which is expected to sustain the risk of flooding across the region.
- Heavy rains trigger flooding in parts of Nigeria.
- Suppressed rainfall continues over parts of southern Ethiopia, South Sudan and Uganda.
1) While a recent increase in August precipitation is expected to lead to more favorable ground moisture, a delayed onset and uneven rainfall distribution observed during the June-September season may negatively impact cropping and pastoral conditions in the region.
La situation pluviométrique s’est nettement améliorée dans la majeure partie de la région. Cependant, certaines zones en particulier le sud du Bénin, du Ghana et du Togo, nord-ouest du Mali, au centre de la Mauritanie, au nord-est du Niger et nord-ouest du Tchad connaissent toujours des déficits de précipitations.
· The humanitarian situation in Diffa continues to be of concern and heavily impacted by the consequences of the situation in Nigeria, even if no major security incidents have been reported.
