High food prices and conflict in South Sudan and Yemen leading to continued Emergency
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.
The number of people targeted through coordinated humanitarian appeals rose from 76 million in 31 countries in December 2014 to 78.9 million people in 37 countries in June 2015. This figure now stands at over 82 million.*
US$6.6 billion have been received within the coordinated appeal framework.
The total humanitarian funding received inside and outside coordinated appeals stands at $11.5 billion. It is worth noting that $23.2 billion is the total amount received inside and outside the appeals last year in 2014.
This map, prepared for World Humanitarian Day 2015, shows the generalized subnational areas around the world of limited humanitarian access and security due to conflict in 2014 – 2015, as well as a bar chart showing the trend of increased attacks on humanitarian aid workers since 2000.
PROJECTED FOOD ASSISTANCE NEEDS FOR FEBRUARY 2016
Snapshot 12 August –18 August 2015
Yemen: The humanitarian situation in Yemen continues to deteriorate. 1.4 million people have become displaced since conflict escalated in March – a 12% increase since early July. Fuel shortages and access issues continue to affect provision of health services. 23% of Yemen’s health facilities are either partially funtional or non-functional.
As of 16th August 2015, the overall registered population in Kakuma Refugee Camp stood at 181,756 (a slight reduction from the end of June 2015 figure(184,850) which is attributed to the inactivation of HR1 individuals who did not show up for the SIM equipping exercise during the 1st Cycle of July '15 food distribution. The individuals may be re-activated once they present themselves at the registration desk upon return to Kakuma R. Camp).
A. Situation analysis
Description of the disaster
Established in 1991, Ifo is the oldest of the five refugee camps in Dadaab, currently accommodating refugees from ten countries. Due to the influx of new arrivals fleeing war and famine in Somalia in 2010/11, the neighbouring Ifo 2 camp was established in 2011 to decrease population pressure in Ifo.
Ifo 2 is one of the newest refugee camps in Dadaab. It was opened in July 2011, to decongest Ifo and Dagahaley camps. Ifo 2 is divided into two sub-camps, Ifo 2 East and Ifo 2 West, and demarcated into 18 sections comprising of four to nine blocks each.
