Message from the Director
Since 2011, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has been working with partners to increase equitable access to education for learners living in conflict and crisis-affected environments (USAID Education Strategy,
February 2011 Goal 3). The following document provides an analysis of the indicators used in Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Plans (PMEPs) from 25 USAID Education projects1 implemented in 16 countries between 2007 and 2018.
Alert 2016! Report on conflicts, human rights and peacebuilding is a yearbook providing an analysis of the state of the world in terms of conflict and peacebuilding from four perspectives: armed conflicts, socio-political crises, peace processes and gender, peace and security.
Six richest countries host less than 9% of refugees – Oxfam
The six wealthiest countries – which make up more than half the global economy - host less than nine percent of the world’s refugees while poorer countries are shouldering most of the responsibility, Oxfam said today.
While Germany has recently welcomed far more refugees than the other richest nations, there remains a major gap with poorer countries hosting the vast majority of refugees.
The Annual Report meets DFID’s obligation to report on its activities and progress under the International Development (Reporting and Transparency) Act 2006. It includes information on DFID’s results achieved, spending, performance and efficiency.
Syrian Refugees: As the conflict in Syria reaches its sixth year, ongoing fighting continues to displace thousands of Syrians both within and outside of the country. As of May 31, 2016 UNHCR had registered a total 4,838,620 Syrian refugees in neighbouring countries and North Africa since the conflict began. In the last month alone, 1,982 new individuals were registered (up 0.04%) since April 30, 2016. By mid-May the total figure had grown by 7,473 from April 30, 2016 to reach 4,844,111 individuals before dropping to the final end of May total.
Swarms continue to form in Yemen and damage crops
General Situation during June 2016
The Desert Locust situation remained extremely serious in Yemen during June. New swarms formed in the interior, some of which moved into the highlands and may continue to the Red Sea coast while others could still move to the summer breeding areas along the Indo-Pakistan border. Crop damage was reported in Yemen. More swarms are expected to form during July and another generation of breeding could commence in August. Survey and control operations remain limited due to insecurity.
IN 2016, HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE PLANS (HRP) in the MENA region requested US$7 billion and received $1.76 billion. The largest recipient was Syria, with $694 million, followed by Yemen, Iraq and the occupied Palestinian territory. In total, MENA HRPs are 25% funded.
The SYRIA REGIONAL REFUGEE AND RESILIENCE PLAN (3RP) requested US$4.55 billion. The total amount received is $1.34 billion (29%), which leaves a total shortfall of $3.21 billion (71%).
In West Africa, market availability was good in May with supplies from above-average 2015/16 regional harvests, and international rice and wheat imports. Markets remained disrupted throughout the Lake Chad Basin and in parts of Central and Northern Mali. The recent depreciation of the Naira has led to price increases across Nigeria and reduced purchasing power for livestock purchases in the Sahel (Page 3).
Global Overview – Trends and Outlook
Sustaining Independent Media in Times of Conflict
In a year where the greatest influx of refugees seen by Europe since World War II dominated headlines and pressured government aid budgets, I have been asked on several occasions why support to media development in conflict zones, humanitarian disasters and countries in the midst of democratic transition should be a priority.
